Why do little girls love pink? At three my granddaughter has specific colour preferences and pink is at the top of the list. I am so amazed by this. I've looked back through her history to see if there were specific instances I could connect this choice to, but such subtleties can't be traced. Perhaps it is all the pink that society foists on little girls and we perpetuate the choice without even thinking. I can't say I am that concerned that she loves pink; I have never gotten tied up in stereotyping debates. I think it's because I made my way in life and everything about my upbringing was stereotypical!
In honour of her love of pink I've purchased pink sparkling shoes to go with her princess outfit I'm making for Halloween. I couldn't resist. The cat is out of the bag. Nana loves pink too!
I also created this piece of artwork at the encaustic workshop which will be a Christmas gift for her. She already has four artworks in her collection.
