Thirteen years ago, during a summer vacation, my family visited a beautiful gallery with a lovely courtyard and gardens. My daughter couldn't resist plucking a flower from the garden and I snapped a photo of her. I felt so welcome there at that inviting and peaceful place, but little did I know that I would be represented by this gallery many later. I have always loved the photo of my daughter, but now I appreciate it so much more. I enjoyed painting her with her look of happiness and joy over such a simple and sweet little pansy.
