I was enjoying a favorite book today, after a long week of painting. “The Gardens of Impressionism,” fantastic big ole’ book. I came across an amazing painting by French painter Simon Saint-Jean. Suddenly I realized I had seen those eyes and flower hat somewhere before.

Tell me this doesn’t look like the fun photo I took of my daughter Katie on our family trip to Montana last June!

I’ve said it before, Girls Just Gotta Have Fun.

have a great weekend!

-Karen (and Katie).


Why not make a portrait this weekend, and put a giant flower hat on your person! Ha! Send me your sketch…

    My girls, when they were children, looked like they came out of Renoir’s paintings. šŸ™‚
