Orchard in Spring

landscape by Alfred Sisley

A young girl celebrates spring in this lovely impressionist painting by the famous English artist Alfred Sisley(1839-1899). The girl stands with her hands above her head as if celebrating the lovely spring day and the bright blue sky overhead. A woman and a younger child stand in the background as if waiting for the little girl to finish her celebration. This painting is full of rich greens and yellows and maybe it’s just my imagination, but is there also perhaps a black and white dog hidden among the flowers?
