"Little Girl Dreams"



Little Girl Dreams is a 20x10 oil done in open studio by Shirley Fachilla.
Little Girl Dreams is on its way to the Best and the Brightest juried show at the Scottsdale Artists School. I participated last year and am delighted to have the opportunity to do so again in 2013.
For me, this is an extra special painting. My daughter plans to marry this year and of course, painting a young and lovely girl in a bridal gown made me think of my own girl, and of her plans and dreams.

  3. The best paintings are when there is an emotional feeling to them and this one certainly fits the bill. I love the softness, but yet it has the clarity needed - where it is needed. Gorgeous!
