This has been a wonderful day to paint. I was able to focus on and finish Raggedy Ann and I am really pleased with the way she turned out. Raggedy AnnI tried to make her look like a doll that a little girl had played with – a little faded and stained. She’s lost her pinafore. My husband kept saying something was not quite right. After much debate and discussion we looked at an actual doll and there WAS a problem. Raggedy Ann has a big, ear-to-ear smile and my Raggedy just had a small grin. I made her smile bigger and every thing fell into place. Isn’t she a cutie?

    This is my favorite of yours so far, Linda. The composition, color and choice of subject material. Love it! 🙂

    I like your Raggedy Ann, Linda! It is wonderfully charming. I drew one myself some time ago. I better find it and show it to you. We can form a “mutual Raggedy Ann admiration society” :D!

    she is such a nice character to paint.

    Neat – this painting carries a spirit of expectancy. I like this.

    • Thanks Stephan. This painting was really fun to do. I think that is really important. Your paintings always look like you are enjoying the place, the day, the process of creation. I love looking at them!

    I think this would be prefect for a little girls room. Maybe like Hayden or you can save it for one of my granddaughters (not wishing or hoping for any of those any time soon.)
