This is my Hippie girl with a little updated shabby look, and she's on a 9 x 12 piece of wood--this has to be one of my favorite surfaces to work on. I know, I know, you're probabyly wondering where's the humor? I'll get to that in a minute. I was just being a bit nostalgic this week, reliving my teen years. I was what you would call, in my words, a "trendy" Hippie--everybody was. I didn't live in a commune or anything, I just liked to dress like one, because that was the fashion for us teenagers way, way back then, which I'm sure irritated the heck out of the authentic Hippie. They became mainstream--they became part of "the Establishment", which was their main reason for being. They wanted to change the Establishment.
