Mollie - Petite Bohemienne Mixed Media Art Print 8x10

This sweet print can be found at WILD DALLIANCE

"Meet Mollie... She is the first in my new French Market, Petite Bohemienne series inspired by my childhood. For a few years we lived in a cozy little cottage that had somehow survived smack dab in the middle of a metropolis. It was so lovely and unexpected with a whimsical stone wall and a yard that was ever overwhelmed with wild flowers. In the summers the butterflies were everywhere. Years later, the cottage is the place in my heart that I paint from. After all, every now and then it is nice to remember that once upon a time, when the world was different, I lived in sweet little sundresses and saddle shoes... Art Note: This image started as a paper applique collage. Some hand sketching was added. Charcoal, Ink, Watercolor and Acrylic Painting techniques were incorporated. "
