TMTA - Women in Art




One of my favorite women in art is Beatrix Potter. I've always loved her illustrations of the wonderful characters in the Peter Rabbit series...Hunka Munka, Jemima Puddle Duck, Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle and many others. I know I've spent hours reading these stories and admiring her illustrations with my three daughters and I still pull her books off the shelf now and then just to enjoy that gentle world again myself!

Linda- so glad to have found your blog- thanks for posting the link. Your artwork is wonderful!! I do hope you watched the movie about the life of Beatrix Potter with Renee Zellwiger (spelling??) It was delightful to see how much a part of her life her little characters were. Cute movie!
