I wanted to paint that innocence on the verge of growing up. She's holding a peach. A peach can be a symbol for immortality, or maybe the forbidden fruit or maybe just something sweet and precious. I painted her at dusk, my favorite time where one day is about to turn into another.
I'm getting excited for my show in Cannon Beach. This painting and all but two little paintings are on their way. I hope to see people I've met there again. That's the best part!
