Vilula's First Adventure

Vilula Mae Davenport is a hard working and patient woman. Oh...she's kind to everyone and eveyone adores her. Vilula has worked for the Flynn family for over 40 years now. Well....she and her daughter, Pansy, even have a little wooden house of their own right on the Flynn family's property.

Vilula never asks for a thing. She does her work and sings all the while. Now, it's time for Vilula to have some fun. You see, Pansy and Mrs. Flynn have planned an exciting get-away for Vilula...her first ever vacation...her first adventure ~

This original watercolor/collage can be found in Gerushia's Big Cartel Store.

And...Vilula can be found in print form in Gerushia's Etsy Shop.

For those of you who may not know, I collect vintage photos to use in my art. I have a small but fabulous collection of African American snapshots. I have wanted to use "Vilula" and her daughter "Pansy" in an art piece for a long time. So...I decided that now is the time.

Thank you so much for dropping by.

Until Next Time:

This is great! I love all your work. I just recently started making Etsy treasuries when I'm bored and I try to include your stuff whenever I can.
