Emily Jeanne

Captured in a nostalgic moment of autumn's embrace, this painting depicts my daughter, Emily, when she was a tender four years old. As an artist, I have always been drawn to the wondrous beauty of nature throughout the changing seasons. The allure of trees adorned in their autumnal splendor, and the enchanting stillness of winter's embrace have often graced my canvas.

In this artwork, the canvas becomes a portal to the past, allowing me to revisit that cherished late fall morning. Bathed in the gentle glow of the rising sun, Emily stands amidst a symphony of warm, rustic hues, evoking the magic of nature's transformation. The canvas becomes a tapestry of rich ochres, burnt oranges, and golden yellows. The lighting, delicate and tender, plays upon her youthful features, etching every innocent contour with a touch of soft radiance. 

When I look at this painting I think of the fleeting nature of childhood, a moment captured in time and preserved through the artistry of paint. As Emily has now blossomed into her twenties, this painting stands as a cherished reminder of the passing years — a testament to the ever-changing journey of life. I’m happy I have transferred the essence of that remarkable morning onto the canvas, carefully preserving the essence of the season's enchantment and the undeniable love I have for my daughter.
