This week I received an email from Edinburgh, where my print Nettie III is part of an artcollection for healthcare settings.
The small lithograph, that I made in 1988, will be included in a book with artwork from the collection, to help people with dementia engage and communicate. A great honour!
When I looked up this print, a 'self portrait' as a young girl with our budgie Loekie on my head, someting struck me: I had short hair, as my 3 sisters had, and most of the girls I knew.
Nowadays it seems girls have to have their hair long, even from a very young age.
But look at the portraits above, these girls with their (not even that) short hair, don't they look great?
A plea for short hair for girls!
