Very cute. Her face is lovely and so is her hair. What pattern did you use?
 

I used my own pattern making it up as I went along.  The only part of the pattern that was not mine was the skirt. You can get the pattern here.  Thanks for stopping by and leaving you kind comment.

This is my version of Strawerry Shortcake. Missing some strawberries for her hat...waiting for more to come in the mail. But for the most part she is done.

Beautiful! That is one of my favorite photos.

That photograph may have been an inspiration for the American Adventure at Epcot, there is a little write up on it here: http://thedisneyblog.com/2011/08/06/photo-that-inspired-epcots-american-adventure/

WOW! Thank you for posting this and letting me see what that old general store looks like today and boy was I surprised to see it is still standing.  Awwwww, it always breaks my heart when things pass into history like this old store certainly has. Doesn't look like it will be holding up much longer! I bet a lot of living and laughing went on there.
I am an old fashioned traditonalists so naturally I am in love with the past and all things history. I checked out Dorothea Lange's other photo work and OMG!! There are about 20 more of her photos I now want to paint!! At first I thought I wouldn't do another one like this but then there is just so much Americana just ooozing out of her photos (and I truly do LOVE that stuff) that I changed my mind about that. Besides, I can't go back in time and take my own photos. Then too, I really enjoyed the time I spent while painting this painting because the whole time as I was doing it, I went on a long walk down memory lane thru the days of my childhood when I used to pass that old wooden planked store on my way to school. I think most general stores back then were all pretty much built this way with that step-up wooden plank front porch - due to unpaved streets, mud and all that. Dorothea also captures the poverty of that era, an era I happened to have known , well - I lived it. I was also brought back to the long, cold, hard-working days of my youth (working since I was Cool...made me also wonder at the strength and ingenuity of my mother who did her best to feed all us kids and keep us warm. Know what? I wouldn't change it for the world.

Beautiful work! I was surprised to see this on craftster because I know this picture, my g-g-grandmother was from Caswell Co., NC where the original picture was taken.

I'm surprised that a few people know this picture!! Because I never saw it before. I thought I found this great old photo that nobody else saw. I liked it because it reminded me of "Sullys", a store I used to pass on my way to school when I was a kid; it too had a plank front porch. Had I known this picture was that well known I wouldn't have painted it. But thanks for the kind words!

Haven't painted much in a long while but one day I decided to try my hand at a two color composition in black and white. Much to my surprise, I enjoyed working in just the two colors. It is worked in acrylics on aquabord 18"x24".
