From her earliest days, Sister M.I. Hummel loved to draw She delighted her family and friends with pictures of birds and animals. Portraits of young friends engaged in everyday activities were also among her favorite themes. As her talent matured, Sister Hummel still favored these subjects in much of her art. In this painting a little lady and a happy birdie spread joy in this M.I. Hummel Apple Tree Ornament. This cheerful painting exemplifies her appreciation for the beauty in daily life-a reverence that has given Sister Hummel worldwide renown as an artist. This charming scene is simple, yet astonishingly fresh and appealing. Perched on one of the apple tree’s branches, this little girl sits amongst the beautiful apple blossoms. She wears a white blouse under a green and blue dress and a red kerchief tied around her head. A chirping blue bird sits happily atop the tree.
