I've beer reading the 'Wizard of OZ' (the original version) chapter by chapter to the girls as a bed-time story. They are so into it. They've never seen the movie or heard the story... so it's like discovering America to them. Pleasure to watch them get all exited over what's next:)
The gouache painting is of Dorothy... the way I see her. I did go a bit 'Hollywood' on the shoes and made them ruby (even tho they are silver in the story)... Boy, she really makes me laugh... with her good girl - kind and responsible personality.
