Acrylic painting on 16×20 canvas depicting a Victorian girl or china doll reading her beloved book of fairytales. Painted from my imagination, and a bit of a change for me as I do not usually paint figures but wanted to do something different. The title is to remind us how important reading is and using our imagination when reading or creating. She is gazing off in the distance taking a break from the book, all dressed up the way the children were in days gone by.
