Winter White Wedding Dress

Oil on Archival Panel
From My New Winter Line of Fashion and Figure
I began drawing dresses, women's faces, noses, eyes, ears, jewelry, shoes, gloves and all the bling that we adore when I was about 10 years old. When I turned 30, I made it my New Year's resolution to move away from drawing and hop into color and begin painting. It seems a bit like Kismet that almost exactly 20 years later I am returning to fashion.
I get very excited when I start talking about fashion, design, color, form, fabric, texture, and most especially 1940s and 1950s couture. I was getting my hair cut today and having an animated conversation with a friend in the salon. The arm flailing and exuberance got a bit out of control, and finally my hairdresser had to ask me to calm down and sit still lest she cut off an ear or something! Stay tuned, I promise you'll continue to see flowers blooming here. You're just going to get some other cool stuff, too, things we can dream about wearing to the ball at midnight...for example.
