The Lady in the Hat
My mother wore a hat like nobody’s business. She had a way of setting a wide-brimmed straw squarely atop her tiny head like a crown, and when she stepped into a room, she wasn’t greeted with, “Hello, how are you?” but “Girl, where did you get that hat?!” Everyone can’t rock a hat but Miss Rose certainly could. So it should not be much of a surprise that hats pop up again and again in the Gallery. Moms put her stamp on me from Day One.
Our featured piece this week is WINDY. It’s not only a tribute to Miss Rose but also my home town, the Windy City, Chicago. Gusts on Michigan Ave. can blow you right over. Keeping your hat on and your dress down is a major challenge some days. But this print brings a sweet, don’t-worry-about-a-thing breeziness into your space. Don’t you love how she’s leaning into it, going with it? The stripes of her dress dance all around her like happy little children.
Are you smiling? You can’t help it, can you? Seeing this much fun is, well, fun! And come on. Couldn’t you use some fun right about now?
