I love Pinkie

  1. Aha, the latest project?

    Who is "Pinkie", or is that just the name you decided to give her?

  2. "Blue Boy" is a painting by Gainsborough and "Pinkie" is by Lawrence. Both were done in the eighteenth century. They are often paired together and have been reproduced in just about everything you can think of such as ceramics, plates, plastic, cross stitch, needlepoint. Some are really goofy and hilarious, like a plastic alligator as Blue Boy. They're kitschy but I like them. Look for them in almost any antique store and you'll find them.

  3. Ah, I've seen "Blue Boy" before, but not "Pinkie". Go figure.

    Have fun!
