A sunny smile

Another attempt at oils....I took its refrence from a photo of a brilliant Russsian photographer .But its not a copy, just an interpretation.I hope I am not violating any copyrights here!....You can check her out at --http://mechtaniya.deviantart.com/gallery/#_featured--2

I wanted to capture the innocence of childhood combined with the purity and freshness of Nature. Thats why I added alll these sunflowers around her. Its upto you all to tell me if i have succeeded in my humble attempt!

Oil on canvas board 12"X10"
