This is a beautiful painting of TWO little girls on a carousel horse. I imagine the little girls as sisters. The little one with her arms lovingly around her older sister.

The little sister has a white dress trimmed with lace and blue ribbons. Her blond hair has a white ribbon adorning it. The horse is painted with brilliant colors. A beautiful summer scene.
