Folk Art Lady - Inspired by My Daughter

Whenever my daughter draws girls she has them holding their little skirts out as if they are about to curtsy. (I know I'm biased, but she is gifted, right?)

Anyway, I think it's adorable and knew I had to do one of my Folk Art Ladies this way--with her little skirt just so. Here she is. This is Jane and she's rather charming waiting to be asked to dance.

Jane, 7.5" x 6", acrylics and mixed media on 1/2" MDF

She was my entry in the EBSQ Reinterpreting Children's Art Show and won "Member's Mention" in that show.

I love the side polka dots--so playful and sweet!

I love the hanging stars and the words around the edge. What a fun little detail. So darling.

Love the textures and lively elements of your piece. The curtsy really is adorable - a nice inspiration!

Look at the feet and shoes on your little girl's drawings and then go look at my post! I swear their art is universal! The curtsy is precious and your rendition is a delight!
