dandelion princess



8 x 8, oil on canvas

a sunny sailor,
strong, spirited swimmer
and sculptor of sand.
a spellbound artist
in a splashy sea of pink,
and stylishly sequined shoes.
a sincere and soulful singer
in a swirling skirt.

self-confidant and strategic,
sensitive and supportive;
a spectacular speller,
snappy sleuth
and serious scientist.

a shamelessly silly
supervisor of scout,
a sister in september.
a snugly sugarplum
and softhearted smiling star.
six going on seven.

That is so pretty! Can I ask how long it takes to paint a painting like that?
Your poem is wonderful too. You're so creative!

Stunning, Faye, simply stunning! And is that poem your own???

I love your blog and have been commenting (but only in my head!) for quite a long while.

Thank you for the beauty you create.

I'm blown away by this. Just blown away by this painting--and poem, too! Wow. This is a real treasure.

This is a really lovely painting, Faye. Sweet without being saccharine.

Beautifully sweet painting. Love that she is picking flowers. Love the light on the dress. Faye, this is wonderful- whoever this is, I hope they cherish and treasure such a memory.
