Garrison Keillor says if you want to write, find somebody to write about and just start writing, page after page! Don't worry about getting everything in order. Just write everything that comes to mind about this real or ficticious person. Then much later start to make a story out of it!. Well I wasn't even thinking about writing a story when I decided to paint my folk art version of the popular long neck girls, but as I was I  thought of a name for them and then wouldn't they be fun to write about! So we'll see how many pages I have to write to maybe come up with something!
These first three sisters (with the Polka-dot backgrounds)  are the COUNTRY LONGNECK COUSINS. .  PEGGY SUE, I believe will be the middle child, very fun loving and outgoing who loves the color  red!

ANNA MARIE is the oldest of the country cousins. Mature and loving and acts like the second Mother of the girls .

PATTY LOU  is the youngest and fairest of the three. She is the only light hair, blue eyed one of the three!

Next are the CITY LONGNECK COUSINS. JUDITH ANN is the oldest and more mature. She is the only blond /blue eyed girl of the city sisters. Here favorite color is Blue.

MARLYNNE JOY (pronounced Marilyn)   is the middle sister , who is very creative and even designs and makes her own clothes!

CAROL LYNN is the youngest city sister.  I haven't got a fix on her yet!

Sooo much fun! You're so creative! I love the floral print of Marlynne's dress!
Do the city gals live a bit on the wild side compared to their country cousins? lol
Love them!
