A number of years ago I discovered the art of Niki de Saint Phalle, a French-Swiss painter and sculptor.

She created some colorful, full figured sculptures which I love! Here’s an example:

I had created a few drawings in my sketchbooks over the years inspired by her work.

Then recently I did this painting and I’m pretty sure it was inspired by Niki’s art and my other painting titled She Wanted the Rainbow So She Put Up with the Rain.

Big Girl Wings is short for “She Wanted the Rainbow So She Put
on Her Big Girl Wings and Taught Herself to Fly!”

Then I created this print.
