Little House Series: Prairie Girls

So, I’ve been hatching some new ideas for art for this new year and one idea, with lots of encouragement from fellow friends and readers, is a series of paintings inspired by the “Little House on the Prairie” book series by Laura Ingalls Wilder. I am very pleased to present to you the first painting, “Prairie Girls.”

This painting features Mary and Laura playing on the wide expanse of the open prairie, making daisy chains in the wild grasses. The wagon is in the distance, and soon they’ll be on their way to another little house and home.

I’m brainstorming about other scenes to paint, there are so many. I’m so excited to start this new series and hope you enjoy it too πŸ™‚ if you have any suggestions, send them my way!~

  1. Ooh, can't wait! I'm re-reading the Little House series right now, and they are definitely an artistic inspiration. Laura Ingalls Wilder sure had a gift for describing the plains and prairies where her family lived.


  2. I just found your blog and am glad I did! Your artwork is wonderful!! Very interesting blog posts as well. I'll be sure to check back for new posts! πŸ™‚


  3. What a beauty!! Your literary pieces are always so inspired. I love that you dabble with things like this. In fact, I think of you every time I see a Laura Ingalls Wilder or a Tasha Tudor book at my library. πŸ˜‰


  4. Hi there! I found this blog through your Ma Ingalls one! What a lucky day for me! I am in love with your art! So beautiful and folky. You have exquisite taste, and it is very much something I can appreciate.


  5. As you know, I love the Little House books, as well. Paul and I drove out to Chanute Saturday, which is almost to Independence, but we had to come back to town for a going-away party. The Little House house is on my to-visit list!
