I didn't know what I wanted to blog about this art sunday, I have a few moments this morning as our friend is still here but Larry and he went out for a bit this morning.
Raggedy Ann and Andy popped into my head. One of my favorites from childhood. My grandma made me a set of dolls which I still have, back in the 70s I knew an artist that painted all sorts of subjects in watercolors and one year she did a painting of Raggedy Ann and Andy which I ended up purchasing. When I retired from my job of 25 years-my main gift was of a teapot and cups of these favorites of mine. So I just really love them.
Soooo, I thought I would see if I could find any other artists that painted these. I would share a photo of my piece but it is not where I can get to it now.
I found the artist Trina Chow
