Baby Girl with Toy Horse

Baby Girl with Toy Horse

Children were frequently painted holding their favorite toy.  This little child was painted to look sweet  and innocent. It is actually one that I kept because I just loved how naively it was painted.  Twenty-one years ago I started my painting career with portraiture (and Fraktur).  I never promised to achieve an exact likeness but I sure tried.  This particular painting was finished about 15 years ago.  I have it featured in a lemon gold antique frame with old wavy glass.  I love the little yellow chair that is simply decorated and the simple little horse that she carefully holds.  I call her a "she" but "SHE" may actually be a "HE" based on the part of the hair.  Frequently the girls parted their hair in the middle, while the boy's hair was parted on the side.  I don't care, it's a girl.

I don't know why they would ever part a girl's hair in the middle! Don't they know that this accentuates her nose??
