CJ - This is so reminiscent of the sweet days of my girlhood in the warm, magical summer afternoons in Mesa, Arizona! The attitude of the barefoot little girl is charmingly expectant, which gives this beautiful painting a special emotional "tug." Thanks for the your lovely work & "Thanks for the memories!" - v

Nice one CJ! This painting has a very warm feeling to it. Question: Why was she barefooted?

CJ Rider replied:

Thanks Paul! It was a hot summer day - she had a swimsuit on under the t-shirt and shorts. Lots of kids went barefoot back then in the summer - before we figured out the floors in those fast food joints were so germy - ;)

Thankyou for your lovely comment Dianne! and Nice to meet you too!

CJ, it's hard to add to so many positive comments about this work, but I must. Like so many of work paintings, "Soda Girl" goes to the viewer's heart to evoke images of past innocence and feelings of warmth and love. Besides the obvious use of composition, angles, and color, this is a very rare quality indeed. Thank you for sharing your heart and for creating so many wonderful contests for other artists to share theirs.
