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.
