Summertime Dress Up

This painting takes us back, back to the endless, lazy, carefree days of summer, days of long ago, before the world was such a frightening place. When little girls could be little girls, dressing up, playing, living simple lives. Before the days of cell phones and rock stars - when "dressing up" meant looking your best. Inspired in part by Sargent's painting The Daughters of Edward D. Boit, this is one of my favorite portraits. Oh, how I long for those long, lazy summertime days again!
