inspiration: Paintings from India and Barbies?
I checked this book out from the library today. I would have shown you more, but the camera on my battery died right after I took these 2 photos. I love the vibrant colors, flattened perspective, the frame within a frame compositions, the gold leaf...I could go on and on.

And soon, 3 other grown women got sucked in as well, and it was like we were all 9 years old again, taking photos of the Barbies, pointing out which ones were our favorites, talking about which ones we got for Christmas (way back when)...I know they are kind of tacky and sexist, but after capturing my interest for well over 5 minutes today, I've got to admit they still have a certain allure. Here are some photos of my favorites in the display:
