Violet's Bonnet

My first painting of the new year. Was
real nice to hold my pencils and brushes again.
Ms Violet wears an especially pretty bonnet.
Once upon a time, little girls
were not completely dressed
until a special bonnet was
placed on their pretty little head.
  When our granddaughter
wore one recently, I was inspired
to do this painting. 

With brush and watercolors in hand, 
my mind drifted back to a scene
in Gone With The Wind.
Rhett Butler and Scarlett take 
 Bonnie Blue for a pram ride,
 for all the neighbors to see her.....
dressed in her finest from head
to toe.... *Note bonnet worn.

Have a beautiful day!  Dee Dee
