"BUT, I'M NOT FLYING" New Original Oil Painting by Mike Callahan

"...But, I'm Not Flying"
Oil on Linen
24" x 18"
My granddaughter is so darn cute! She's only three and she and her grandma had picked out some fairy wings on the Internet for her. She waited anxiously for them to arrive asking if they came yet each time she came to visit. The finally arrived and she was so excited to try them out. Her grandma helped her put them on and she immediately began to run around the house, then she stopped, twisted herself trying to see them and asked her grandma if they were on all the way. Her grandma said, yes, they are on all the way. To which she looked at her grandma puzzled and said, "...but, I'm not flying!"
Her auntie got a shot of her with her i-phone right at that moment and it was such an adorable shot I asked her if I could paint it. She agreed and here is my effort.

p.s. her hair really is that long!
