This little girl captures innocence to me and that has been on my mind a lot this week with all the terrible problems of terrorism we have seen this in the news. This morning on the Today show, I saw a interview with a young child who was describing how his teacher taught his class to respond if a "bad person" came into their school. This breaks my heart that children have to even think about that as a possibility. My prayer this season is for Peace on Earth.
The reference photo for this painting came from a wonderful photographer, Jim Little. This is actually his little granddaughter, Evie. Jim Little's Photography can be found at
Jim has years of experience and is an artist of photography. I am lucky because his daughter is married to my son so I get the advantage of wonderful photos of my grand children. Check him out!
