“I’m so cold!” Even though Winter had transitioned finally to Spring, those three words had incessantly repeated in my mind. Half of my apartment is below ground – with little to insulate me from the rock it is built upon. My hands remained rigid, posing a problem in carrying out detailed paintings. So, the cold became a muse of sorts. Colored pencils occupied me until a new heater arrived. And my sanity, somewhat restored!
A real fashion mashup I have in this 9″ x 8″ gouache painting. While formulated from three found sources, it wouldn’t have that shadowed woman without a photo that had been taken by Willy Vanderperre. I’ll leave the painting’s story to you.
