Mayzie looks lovely with her orange shirt to compliment the daisy in her hair--all against a warm, buttery background.

"Mayzie" is a collage painting. I began by collaging on her hair, face, features, shirt and daisy. I used an old map of Paris I got in a French class in college for her face (does that make it vintage?) :-) And printed paper from a French text book for her hair. The rest is scrapbook paper. After I put on the paper, then comes paint.

This painting was inspired by a Dr. Suess book called "Daisy-Head Mayzie". I painted Mayzie in my style although I kept the Dr. Suess classic red and white stripes by adding them for her eye lids.

Poor Mayzie, "...a daisy was sprouting right out of her hair."

This painting was done for an EBSQ show called Re-Imagining Seuss.
