The best things in life......

The best things in life are nearest: Breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of right just before you. Then do not grasp at the stars, but do life's plain, common work as it comes, certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things in life. ~Robert Louis Stevenson

Very Nice Painting, And even better thoughts.
The girl looks happy doing her simple works and is nicely dressed.

Great words! Love the expression in her face.

The dress is just so well done! :) I think you did a great job coloring it, and the cultural thing is surely prominent!

I'm liking this. I think this is the best work I've seen of yours, so far. The woman feels more real, and I like how you've laid down your colors more quickly and cleanly.
