More "GREAT" art...

Oh my Oh my ! We all soooo love and remember this one Veronica. Great animation of an iconic piece of art !

I (think !) I first saw this in the mid to late 1970s already, in my rebellious student or post-student phase :-)
But not sure exactly when Veronica ? It had such a real powerful impact on me. Unforgettable. I so loved its wonderful non PC nature and its realistic portrayal of CP ! Naughty girls gotten whoopings on a bare botty. Period.

My hubby has always seen this art as fun...and fantasy. We both like the British Schoolgirl context with the heavy Tweed outfits and strict, traditional fashion. And the very formal, sober situation in this CP scene. What a naughty lil' girl she is over daddy's knee !

But for me in was also harsh reality, Veronica. And historical fact. I always said its non PC nature verified my own childhood, being 1950s born and raised in a strict, religious household where bare bottom punishment was a normal, common part of growing up and family life in the South !

We all have our own personal views and fond memories of this drawing Veronica:-)
This picture had a unique impact on me already. I have loved (and nurtured ha-ha) this original drawing for most of my life, and I am now in my late 50s.

My lovely lil' "baby" sister (also late 50s ha-ha) and many of my girlfriend peers from Georgia also feel similarly sentimental about this art, naturally Veronica ! Ouchieees to tender botties :-)
Oh my ! The memories. Gulp !
Hi Tim also - hope all is swell :-)
