It is the artist’s distinctive style, combined with her technical artistry that result in meticulously detailed and dramatic compositions such as this one. Each one is beguiling, creating a sense of wonderment and intrigue for the observer. This charming composition features two young children going about their day at home, as the girl looks out the window as doves fly in.
