Right before posting I have a great temptation to change the title of this painting to “The Three Muses” – or, “The Three Graces”. Truthfully? I haven’t got the whole “Gods and Goddesses” background to pull it off. Not to mention that the costume designs were inspired by an era when The Flapper was all the rage…
This gouache painting measures approximately 10.5” x 8.5”.
Inspired by an image of mossy hills, I wound up painting a sort of story of the origin in the symbolic cross. In this 8.5″ x 7.5″ [mostly] gouache, I also felt compelled to include symbols of life’s four primary elements: Earth, Wind, Water, and Fire. And while I am not really one for lengthy discourses of a painting’s meaning, viewing this piece on any screen seemed to require at least some clarification…
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.
A momentary veering off from the Diaphanous series. Measuring at 5 inches wide by 8 inches in height, this piece comes from my exploration in working with gouache. Its colors are actually taken from the ones in my home’s bathroom. Drip… drip… drip.
