I love the colors and the girl looks so pretty and graceful. She rather reminds me of a princess or worthy peasant maid in a fairy tale. Snow White perhaps?
You probably noticed that the style is a lot like William Adolphe Bouguereau's and they have the same last name. Elizabeth Jane Gardner Bouguereau was William Adolphe Bouguereau's student and later his wife!
