"Playing Dress-up", 12x16, oil on linen

A recent visit from my California family brought about a slight dilemma. What to do with a two and a half year old on a day that was just not right for the beach or pool? A quick Google search  and I discovered the Sarasota Children's Garden in downtown Sarasota.

It was just the thing for an overcast day with little fantasy gardens, a make-believe dragon and pirate ship and special dress-up room for all sorts of imaginings. The dress-up room proved to be the hidden treasure. As a true "Frozen " aficionado , Zoey had no trouble locating a Princess Anna gown from the racks of little girl costumes.

Though not quite the perfect fit, it nevertheless did not hamper Zoey from imagining her magic realm. I was only too glad to be one of her Highness's royal subjects!
