Mixed Media Artist

Freeing


This is a 6″x12″ mixed media painting on wood. The sides are 1.5″ deep and are painted turquoise.
This painting is $90 and is available HERE.
On ‘Freeing’:
I have to say, I have always felt that wearing men’s ware as a women is not only incredibly sexy but very freeing as well. I am not sure that men feel this way but I have always loved stars that have opted to go this route. Think Katherine Hepburn, Diane Keaton, Marlene Dietrich and even Madonna. I guess I just really like the fact that you don’t have to be showing all that much skin and still have amazing sex appeal. It is kind of empowering. Like I said, not sure if the guys actually like it. I remember going to a school dance dressed up as Charlie Chaplin and I can tell you, I didn’t dance at all that evening. Perhaps a mustache on a woman is never that sexy and, in retrospect, going to a dance at an all boys school and dressed up as a ‘boy’ is probably not the greatest idea I’ve ever had, even if it was Halloween.

MATISSE FOR INSPIRATION:
This Saturday we had our first art lesson in the loft. Having just all seen the local art gallery’s exhibit of Matisse, I decided that this would be an excellent jumping off point.
Here is what the girls’ created.
( Scarlett was a little creative with the blue eyeshadow before we even got started!)



Meg, signs her creation.
I think they all did a wonderful job!

    Awesome art from the girls! I love when painting inspiration takes over the whole family. Also, I’m with you on the women in men’s clothing. I love Katherine Hepburn. I want to be her when I grow up.

  4. Hi Maria. Looks like such a good time. Could my little girl take art lessons with you? She is 5. And actually, I would like to spend some time with you, too, creating something. I have a painting half done and I think I need some help to make my dream of the painting come true.

    PS. I met you at Sandy Paddick’s party and I still want to buy one of your works. If you send me an email, we can trade phone numbers. My blog is shannonsookochoff.wordpress.com.
