Contemplative by Frances Kuta

This painting of Cassidy is another of my Victorian oil paintings I've recently done. The striped dress costume reminded me of one of Norman Rockwell's illustrations of Jo in Louisa May Alcott's Little Women...the one where she was standing outside the publisher's office with her manuscript in hand. Either her skirt or her jacket were striped...I can't remember which it was...but the stripes showing the fullness and pleats in the clothing intrigued me.
