  1. It has been brought to my attention that this is a painting of Matryoshka dolls and NOT Babooshka dolls, which according to Wikipedia is a commonly misused name for the former. I HAD researched this before creating the painting, just to make sure and was delighted when I saw all the sites which apparently are also wrong and misused the name so believed with all my heart that this is indeed Babooshka and that the names could be interchanged. And I’d SO rather say Babooshka than Matryoshka which just makes my mouth go funny. But ultimately I want to be right, so I’ve changed the name.

  2. Beautiful painting! Legs remind me of the lady in the bath painting by Matisse. I preferred the blue background though :)
