Cleveland lore reminds us that in decades past, an Easter parade took place around the lagoon at the Cleveland Museum of Art, and that the centerpiece of the event was ladies in festive hats.
It's too bad the hat tradition died. What's more festive than a hat with all kinds of fussy stuff?
And what's more fun to draw than a lady in a festive hat, as one of my favorite illustrators, Maira Kalman, has done famously on the cover of the New Yorker (more than once)? If you don't know Maira Kalman, please go immediately here.
So here's my Easter hat lady. I might yet do another before spring is gone.
