My Flower Child

Finished this studio painting of my daughter this morning.  It's copied from a photograph taken when she was two years old, nearby to our previous home during a scooter ride around the neighborhood.  Emma is clasping a bunch of wild flowers which she'd picked for me and is dressed a little hippyish - hence the title 'My Flower Child'.  I left the background light and simple as I wanted to leave out the wooden fencing and metal barrier and create less contrast between the faded straw hat and the ground.
