This is an "Ode to Mary Cassatt" as part of acknowledging some of my favorite painters and artists. Mary Cassatt (1844-1926) was an American painter, who lived in France, and exhibited there. She often painted children, mother and child relationships and garden scenes. This is her painting which inspired me.

My painting is based on a photo of our granddaughter, Grace, who did not want leave the playground. She is now 10, but was probably 4 or 5 in the photo.
