Tiger Lily

2016 acrylic on canvas  23.5″ x 23.5″

The subject is a little girl in a Sunday dress from the 1950’s, but she is also obviously a fierce warrior in the field of childhood games.  My daughter was the model for this painting showing the wonderfully feral nature of childhood, but the image also channels my own childhood, and the character “Tiger Lily”, the Indian Princess from Peter Pan’s Never Never Land.
