Artist in Bloom


Move over Leonardo, I saved the best for last.  This budding artist was creating her own masterpiece, and I was lucky enough to capture her in the act.  Is she adorable or what??
"Every child is an artist.  The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up."
Pablo Picasso.

Today's Tune du Jour is "Clementine" by Pink Martini.

Hello Virginia !

C'est une artiste en herbe...

She is a future great artist...

Olivier said...

Le talent n'attend pas le nombre des années...une future artiste, elle a un beau sourire. bravo

The talent does not expect the number of years ... a future artist, she has a beautiful smile. Bravo

This looks like my little sister.. or well it did.. she's 19 now! I used to love tying those big bows in her hair!

I posted something at Volia Vintage that you will like!

Laurie said...

Aw! She doesn't look much older than my little girl -- who is another budding artist. What a great photo, Virginia. I've really enjoyed this series.

She as potential!!! :-)

Abraham Lincoln said...

A beautiful little girl who loves what she is doing. She is getting a lot more attention than she would if playing dolls.

Knoxville Girl said...

She's a cutie! And so lucky to hava an opportunity like this to instill a love of art in her soul.
Tres jolie.
And j'adore Pink Martini- one of my faves.

Bibi said...

What a sweetie. Love the colors on her work, and on her shirt, too!

angela said...

She is gorgeous and very talented too. I love that little shirt she's wearing too...

nathalie in avignon said...

Betcha she is, as my Aussie friends would say!

What a delightful child!

From a photographic point of view, although the smile and face are stunningly bright and beautiful, I find the white ribbon a bit obtrusive.

Virginia, you say you'll be in Paris in November - Any chance of coming down to Provence ?

Virginia said...

Nathalie, oh that we would have the time to come to Provence! Every day when I look at your beautiful photographs, I want to come more and more. Maybe another trip! Merci. Oh, and about the bow. Little girls in the south wear lots of bows. I wasn't touching this one! I was just thrilled to be getting to catch a quick snap of that smile!

angela said...

PS just left you an answer on my blog.
And I forgot to say that I love the choice of music(though maybe it should have been: Thank Heaven for Little Girls!

She's so cute, who knows maybe one day you'll say "I remember that artist as a little girl!!!"

Halcyon said...

Too cute!

Bibi said...

Virginia, check out Marie's postcard blog at http://www.cpaphilblog.com/

She has a postcard of your city!

Virginia said...

My music selections have come to a near halt. There is some kind of prob with Deezer and I can't get access to most of their tunes. Anyone know how to get around that or know of another site that has players?? VJ the DJ can't go out of the tune du jour business now!!!

Rambling Round said...

Adorable beyond words! You captured her perfectly.

alice said...

This one is my favorite artist. Of course!

Virginia said...

Bibi,
Thanks. I am planning on going downtown and shooting a photo from that same corner and sending it to Marie Reed. What a great surprise this morning to see that vintage postcard of B'ham, all the way from France.

Ming the Merciless said...

What a pretty smile!

You caught her at the right moment.

Coltrane_lives said...

I bow to the genius in front of me. Look at all the colors. This artist is working the canvas. Beautiful in every way. Merci Virginia! Also, like the Picasso quote. Ciao for now.;-)

Virginia...clicked on your blog from Ken Mac's 9/11 photo today. Love your photographs. I am a retired art teacher, love photography, have 4 grandchildren, live on a horse farm, have hosted 5 students from France, the last one from Paris. Interesting!

Ah. What an adorable young artist!

Virginia said...

Lori, are we twins separated at birth?? Please stop by often, we might find more we have in common!

Louis la Vache said...

Indeed you saved the best for the last! What a little cutie!

Katie said...

What a sweet sweet photo! You do SUCH a fabulous job with portraits, as I've said before. And yes, what fun to see the Birmingham postcards over at Marie's!

Peter said...

She IS adorable!

I like very much the Pablo P quote!

Marie said...

Her work of art is interesting but the artist is gorgeous!

Dusty Lens said...

Two artists, one creating art, the other capturing art. Adorable, YES! I am sure she will enjoy the Louvre and D'Orsay one day.
