Once again this piece has gone through several changes but then with me, what else is new! I began this painting thinking "exotic" and I painted her face half and half with shades of blue and gold. Looked okay but just wasn't doin' it for me. So out came the gesso and she disappeared.
She looks a little sad or mad or just plain not happy but that's who she is and that's what I went with. Every face isn't beautiful and everyone isn't always happy.
approx. 7.5" x 11"
I think she's some suburban "community leader" who has a meeting but she's not happy about going, plus she's a bit of a rebel so she's wearing an over-the-top hat just to shake things up a bit. Maybe she'll swing her head around so that long tassel will hit someone in the face....probably that guy who's been trying to take over her job. Don't mess with her! She's a woman on a mission!
(I just noticed her mouth is messed up on the right side of the picture. I'll have to repair her lipstick!)
