oh my, what have we here? ...

why, it's a charming little girl ~

who has no name ...

here's her story ~

This is an original watercolor. Pat specifically did not title this work so that the purchaser would have the honor of naming it. The title given to this piece will then be recorded in the archives of Pat’s original works.

A pretty little girl stands perfectly poised in a vibrantly beautiful field of wildflowers. Is she waiting for a friend? Perhaps she’s simply part of a conversation with those we cannot see? It matters not. The expression on her face is all we need to see that we are looking at a happy, hopeful girl.

Surrounded by the colors of late spring/ early summer, the thriving field of colors frames our sweet miss, and suddenly this painting is transformed into and becomes the portrait of an actual child.

Do notice that with all of the color that the artist has chosen to use in this image, the girl’s pinafore is actually negative space.

Pat is an expert at incorporating negative space, a space without paint, into her paintings as if deliberately painting the white area and incorporating it into the image.

This original watercolor has been custom framed with three (3) acid-free mats, acid-free backing, conservation glass and a black frame enhanced with a silver inner edge. The opening of the middle mat has been lined with a silver, wood fillet, creating a frame within a frame.

This original watercolor is available for purchase at The Art Loft Gallery, Ltd. Contact Carolyn at 618.344.1212 or to inquire about it.
