"Ribbons in Her Hair"

4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
Oil on mat board

To purchase, email me with the title in the subject line.

I was rummaging around in the basement and found this old plastic barrette, covered in dirt and dust and turned yellow with age. It got me thinking about when I used to wear these types of barrettes, and about the joy of dressing up and fixing your hair when you are a little girl. It's funny how a little piece of plastic can bring back so much.
