The 1920s, Ladies Series

Sherry Sexton's avatar Sherry Sexton

The 1920s, a tumultuous time when so many tempting things were forbidden. Friends, single, and adorned with their cloche hats and matching dresses. They meet up to show off their beautiful clothing and have friendly comparisons, as women will do. The series includes portraits of Magna, the outlandish red flapper; Clarice in a beautiful turquoise dress with beaded cloche hat; Lizzy (short for Elizabeth) in the color peach and purple trim, and Lily in the demur pink-laced cloche hat. Two scenes arriving at the dance hall include a Ford Model A and Lily at the picnic. My development of the 1920s Ladies series has been a passion. The series includes one 12" hoop, one 7" hoop, and four 4" hoops.
