Sweetness . . .




Have you ever seen something so precious as this little girl? The name of this painting is "Les Prunes"
by the french painter William Adolfe Bouguereau. I am in love with his painting style. Such softness.
Here's another sweet child painting
"La Reverence"




A quote of his states:

"Each day I go to my studio full of joy; in the evening when obliged to stop because of darkness I can scarcely wait for the morning to come... if I cannot give myself to my dear painting I am miserable."

I love it!

They are both so 'sweet'. I love the fact that they have bare feet.

I love that style of painting, too! He seems to have captured the espressions much in the same way as Renoir. Thank you for sharing!

I just found your blog! I love his style of painting...the girls are always so sweet, but not overly so.

I just started blogging, this is addicting!

His paintings speak to me, aren't they amazing. I love his one with the Virgin and Christ child best, the one that is nearly all is white tones.

I can sure relate to that quote....although I am not capable of what he has done! What a master of the paint:)
