20x24 - oil on canvas
This was inspired from old Victorian photographs.
Proper little darling girls, their hair in perfect curls, in their best clothes.
But she has a different baby than the rest of the girls.
April and I were talking about bugs (over lunch of course)
She was telling me about a book she read, I dont remember the name, but it was gross and maggots had something to do with part of the story. We also came up with the title to our show then.
Well when I got home I drew this sketch up.
Im not all to familiar with what a maggot actually looks like. And since it was going to be painted so big, I figured I had to know. So I google imaged "maggot".....I dont recommend anyone to do that. So gross.
I was having a hard time finding anything that wasnt making me feel ill, so I stopped my search and just did my best painting from memory.
shes one of my other favorites.
She kind of reminds me and myself as a girl, with my beat up ragged doll. That I loved no matter how bad it looked.
