"Doorway to Womanhood"

This painting was inspired by my niece. At the young age of 4 she had a presense that I had not witnessed in my own children or my other nieces. She sat on the edge of the bed, turned to look at me, with the afternoon sunlight streaming through the window bathing her face in a warm, rich glow. With great poise, she did not smile looking into the camera with a self-assured dignity that she possesses today. Although she was dressed very casually, I pictured her as a little woman. I sketched her in pencil wearing a white dress, as a flower girl, The white dress could be mistaken for a wedding dress which I pictured she would be wearing one day. When she saw the painting she was not impressed. Her comment was "Aunt Nancy, can you paint me in a tee-shirt?"
