Mixed Media Artist


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.

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.
