The Beauty Shop
AT MY ACRYLIC STATION, BEAUTY SHOP WAS THE SMALL PAINTING OF THE DAY.
Beauty Shop was painted from a reference photograph I took at the beauty shop while under the dryer heating my streaks to a glorious blond. I took the photo thinking the beauty shop is a major institution in American women's lives. No matter what the economy, no woman would give up going for the right cut, the right color. It's a Rockwell subject I know, but he didn't know. So the subject became mine for another quick, little figurative painting. This one is 16 x 20"--a bit larger than Honey's Nose.
I'M MOVING TO PORTLAND!
I want to go to this event. Indeed, I want to move to Portland. For months now Honey and I have been talking about relocating. From what I've seen around Blogsville, Portland looks like my kind of city. We never have events like this in our town. If you love art, wine and mingling with others of your kind, you'll be jealous as hell. Take a look, you'll want to move too.
