About this painting: "Fairytales and Lace" An enchanting model session with my daughter and a neighbor girl led to the creation of this painting. What fun we had playing with the different types of fabric, flowers, and props! It took us all to another time, one that I enjoyed capturing in paint. Depicting a scene reminiscent of long ago, where the act of reading was often frowned upon for girls whose lives were expected to conform to a series of restrictions and rules. Learning and knowledge were often reserved for males. I cannot imagine living in such a time. I would be like these girls, completely oblivious to any social expectation contradicting my insatiable hunger for knowledge. Here's to the girls who read anyway! Your legacy lives on and we are grateful!
