Seize a flower, seize the day,
Surprise yourself on this way.
Seize the wind, seize the light,
Forget the time, it's out of sight.
Give up gold, envy and wrath,
Tend your garden on your path.



French:

Cueille une fleur, cueille le jour,
Attarde toi le long de ton parcours.
Saisis le vent, attrape la lumière,
Oublie le temps qui est derrière.
Abandonne ton or et ta jalousie,
Cultive ton être et ton jardin aussi.



Time : 28 hours
Software : Photoshop CS2
Tool : Wacom Intuos 4M

I love the innocence combined with the comical clumsy
that goes along with almost all children. This artwork
reminds me of myself, my daughter my grand daughter.
Lovely!

Beautiful, I've looked at all of your paintings and your artistic style is wonderously expressed in many ways yet it always seems like it's ... BURSTING if that makes sense like the color and pictures themselves could burst from the paintings and come to life and you almost ... expect them to with the movement and creativty in each one you make.

J'aime bien toutes les couronnes qui traînent autour. Comme si elle les avait toutes essayées, et qu'au final, sa préférée restait la plus simple, une couronne de fleurs... Son expression est magnifique.

It's so funny I saw this, because I was just reading in Ecclesiatics today how we should enjoy our days while we are young indeed. This was soo cute. It actually sort of reminds me of me when I was young. So true.

The perspective here looks off. As in, the trees look like your viewing them level, but the girl's view is from the top.
