Rozsa Loves Her Red Boots

 A while back I drew this Hungarian girl in traditional Hungarian folk clothes.  Here she is making another appearance, this time in red boots.  I suppose since I have drawn her twice she deserves a name and I decided on Rozsa, which means Rose in Hungarian and is a name that is near & dear to me.  I'm looking forward to her next outfit!

  1. I love the sketches, Rita!
    My boyfriend is hungarian, so this makes me think of his mother and sisters as little girls in cute hungarian dresses!

  8. Hi Rita,
    She's gorgeous. I think every girl should have a pair of red boots. Love your Hungarian sketches. Thank you for stopping by my blog. Yes I love bats too, have loads here. Even had some squatting in my old farmhouse that I'm renovating. They have moved out since we started on the new roof. Have a great day.. :)
