Art Review: Chesley McLaren

The whimsical sketches of artist Chesley McLaren have inspired me since I first saw her works in Meg Cabot’s Princess Lessons when I was a young girl.  For years, her fashion illustrations have been some of my favorite art and have appeared in publications such as Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, and the like.  This holiday season, I am especially happy to see her works as they remind me of all of the good that the holiday season represents.  Below, the illustration she did of a boot is that of the tradition of Saint Nicholas Day (or Nikolaus) on December 6 where he leaves treats such as fruit, candy, cookies, or small toys in a boot for children.
