The spring has been filled with wonderful moments at the soccer fields. I have loved watching all the games: from my daughter’s team which started the season running like a gaggle of ducks all together, to my sons who play such intense games I can’t sit down. We have frozen and burned up, nearly have been blown away by the wind, and in between, watched spring unfold all around us. We have made new friends and reconnected with old ones, and enjoyed many yummy picnics.

I planned on painting a picture of the kids playing soccer, but this little girl was next to us in an overgrown field during my son’s last game. She was singing softly and gathering yellow flowers. She was such a distraction, I loved watching her as much as the boys’ game (which was a close one). The wildflowers and purple satin dress won out, I will paint the soccer players next season.

P.s. thank you to all the moms who take their daughters to soccer games in full princess regalia.

  1. I was lucky enough to watch this Princess picking flowers. It was a joy and Juliana you have captured the moment perfectly. Thank you for your beautiful gift of art.

  2. Yes Juliana, agree .. sometimes we lose site of the little delights in life, especially at sporting events. Nice to take a break from the screaming crowds and breathe in nature & the simple things in life (picking flowers, a starlit night, a butterfly on a flower), ….and the joy it brings almost as much as kicking a soccer ball past a star goalie (<: Thanks for sharing … Ken & Paige (Austin, TX)
