A Girl With A Watering Can

A Girl With A Watering Can. Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841 – 1919)

I generally find inspiration in older artwork, specifically from the Renaissance and Baroque eras. However, it’s hard not to love the beautiful settings and artistic interpretations of the Impressionists.

The painting of A Girl With A Watering Can by Pierre-Auguste Renoir captivates me because of the sweetness of the little girl. I love everything about her, from her pretty blue dress to her colorful red bow to the way she holds on to the flowers in her left hand. There’s an innocence to this painting that I just love. I can picture myself being that little girl. In my idealized mind it’s a perfect summer day, warm but not hot or humid, and just outside the frame of the painting are my friends and family at a picnic. People are laughing and singing, having a great time, and there’s enough love in the air to fill an ocean. No one is sick, or troubled, or filled with anxiety. Everything is just perfect. When I need to fill happy and peaceful, all I have to do is look at this painting and dream. It just puts a smile on my face. Wonderful.
