Lilac Festival by Steve Henderson

Children and flowers — capturing and respecting the innocence and beauty of the subject matter is a balancing act, because you don't want to degenerate into cutesy. Lilac Festival sets the viewer in the garden, quietly viewing a young girl totally absorbed in the moment. Free form brushstrokes and a sashay into impressionism impart a soft, gentle feeling, touched by spring's breeze.

Lilac Festival is an original oil painting on panel, 16 x 20, and framed, available through Steve Henderson Fine Art.
