“Flower Girl” is the fifth in my Cherry Creek Arts Festival Favorites series. The image was captured at Creation Station, a popular place at the Festival where children are encouraged to create their own artwork. This painted coffee filter will be transformed into a beautiful butterfly once a pipe cleaner is added to shape the wings.
I saw the large, bright flower in this cute little girl’s hair and had to take a closer look. Many kids were wearing shorts and T-shirts, but I know she likes “girly” things likes dresses and bracelets and necklaces. When Flower Girl grows up, she’ll probably get boys to buy her expensive “bling”, but now she’s content to wear buttons from Channel 7 Weather (“I’m a Junior Weathercaster”) and OzoneAware.org ( “Ride like the Wind”).
