Three Strands

I have been having such fun with this series...even with a month away in the middle I was able to keep my interest and enthusiasm going (not an easy task). I wasn't sure this would work and I struggled for quite awhile until I finally felt it showed what I was trying to convey. For this whole series I have been using interference paints and iridescent paints on the jewelry which does not photograph well at all. Suffice to say, they are a lot more fun in person.

Girl with Pearl Necklace -SOLD

I love the juxtaposition of ideas between the pearls and the cigar. I think it's rather unexpected. At the same time I love the dark moody club feel. My last few paintings have been in bright colors and I probably needed to return to my comfort zone with something dark again. I'm have a lot of fun with this series. there are still 6 more I want to do. Then what? I'll have 10 paintings of women with their makes me laugh.
