Girl with red schoolbag

This morning when I went to drop my son at school-bus stop, this little girl was standing on the other end, with her grandfather. Her bus was late, perhaps, because she was kind of bored...shifting her weight and fidgeting with grandpa's trouser leg! I was so taken in by her innocence that I i decided to paint her later in the day.
I did this painting from memory as I couldn't click her on the spot:)
This is water colors on paper, 7'X10"
