Flapper Girl


As quoted from Wikipedia:
The term flapper in the 1920s referred to a "new breed" of young women who wore short skirts, bobbed their hair, listened to the new jazz music, and flaunted their disdain for what was then considered acceptable behavior. Flappers were seen as brash for wearing excessive makeup, drinking, treating sex in a casual manner, smoking, driving automobiles and otherwise flouting social and sexual norms.

Our monthly challenge for Tam's group, World of Whimsy, was to do a painting from an specific era, any era we choose. God bless the flapper girls!! ♥♥
