A girl and her doll
I wanted "girly" and sweet and Hideko definitely captured the feeling of the period of this painting... Look closely at the bottom and you see she has created an entire country scene with manor house and all. With all the special touches now the block itself has a story.
She has posted about what the painting reminded her of as a child and it is very touching. To hear her tell it you can go to her blog. I could do all these blocks myself but they would all look like MY work, my voice.. It will be so much more special for each block to have another "voice."
Thank you so much Hideko... I shall treasure it.
