Maurine Always Felt Like Such a Wallflower Whenever She Was Around Dorothea and Lyda, Early Spring of 1931.


I was in the mood to do a painting with LOTS of patterns after doing several in a row that were more along the lines of simple (not that I ever end up doing simple it seems). After two full days on this piece, I've had my fill of patterns, at least for a day or so! I did have fun making Maurine almost blend in with the wallpaper.

Aww, poor Maurine, the literal wallflower. I really like all the patterns, (and I really like the black dress) It's so intricate, I can see how this took two days!! Beautiful :)

Your wonderful patterns are one of the many details I admire about your style.
Lovely piece.

Thank you Kate & Linda! I just got home from the fabric store where I had the nicest conversation with a woman named Maureen :)
