Writing On The Body Of A Queen - fini
The dipstick (or is it diptych?) I have been working on to help raise funds for The Northern California Dance Conservatory is finished. Note that Marie Antoinette's fan has "real" jewels on it worth almost $8. My goal with this double acrylic was to reflect the glitzh and bling of Marie's world before those nasty, nasty revolutionaries put the kabasch on it all. I also wanted to reflect the female movement of this beautifully choreographed dance. Ninety percent of this painting was executed (no pun intended} with various sizes of flat brushes. The design on the dancer's dresses were painted using paper doilies and an air brush.

I love all the movement and textures in these paintings (or should I call it "this painting"???) I expect you will raise a lot with this one... it is beautiful.
Spectacular! Super. This is a tricky composition with the face and the abstract dancers -- Bravo!
Glad to know the jewels are "real". magnificent work!
Thank you so much, Joanne.
Barbara, Yes, it was one of those paintings where I had to feel (paint) my way to a solution.
