The Ivy Girl

Finished The Ivy Girl today. There was an old custom in some parts of England of the ‘Ivy-Girl’, wherein the girls in the village built an effigy of ivy known as the ‘Ivy-Girl’. It was stolen by the young boys in the village and then burned.
Here is my fantastical and macabre interpretation of the folk tradition. Acrylic on canvas board 8″ x 10″. At My Good Babushka.
This makes a nice companion piece to The Holly Boy.
