Barefoot Summer Girl by Bouguereau

Here is another beautiful image that I think is appropriate for summertime.  This is a Victorian-era painting by the French artist Bouguereau, restored and enhanced.  Bouguereau painted gorgeous portraits of women and girls.  I love the pose, the way the little girl is tilting her head and brushing her hair back, and the look on her face.  And of course her bare feet!  Also the wildflowers and the green pear she holds in her hand.

Have a happy weekend.
