Glamour Girl

WIP

My fingers have been itching to create something new, but I've been so involved with cleaning out my mother's house, helping Ava move, and spring cleaning my own house that I haven't had the energy to do more that walking into my studio and sit down at the computer. My brain feels clutterd with all the "stuff" I've put my hands on this week. This is a photograph I took of a wig stand that I painted last year. Her name is Ava (as in Gardener, not my sister) I altered the color of the photograph to use as an element in a collage I'm working on, and I was intrigued with its painterly effect, after I changed the color saturation. You can see Ava in her natural state in the studio pictures below. So I'm posting it for the Art on the Darkside Mannequin challenge, Theme Thursday Glamour Girl challenge, and One Powerful Hour's circle challenge. Maybe next weekend I'll have time to work on the actual collage or finish one of the three other paintings I have in prgress.

This SO reminds me of a very dear friend! Such a lovely image x

I hope the clutter gets cleared soon and that you have some creative creating time for yourself. I get "itchY" when too much time passes away from my paints and stuff too.

Love the altered photo - very cool !
Happy Thursday !

Hmmm . . . sounds like it's been a LOT of work lately and hardly any "play", Alberta! This lovely lady is both clever and creative! You share similar traits! Hugs xoxoxo

indybev said...

Oh, SIGH, a neck made for turtle necks and luscious high ruffled collars. I always wanted one of those! Love the bright colors here, Alberta!

Yet said...

right on! I love how creative you are. You see possiblities in everything! My gosh, I know that you're busy but it seems like you just have a life. That's wonderful. You're helping people you love. What can be better than that? I would love to see how this photo looked before so I can compare. Have a great day.

Ava Gardner is certainly on my list of glamour-gals. This wig stand is fabulous. Love the colors.

Hope I am not an intruder here (I am an old male coot artist/journal keeper/writer) but I too have long carried on a dialogue with my own Muse - who presents herself in many varying persona's. In fact I had done many pages on the subject and have even created a series. I am fairly new to blogging but I intend soon to present them there. I will post one "homage" to Her now for you to view if you like. You are a good artist. I can see immediately why your site is popular. I will bookmark you site.
Thank you.

I love the painterly effect. I actually thought this was a painting you had done. Love the wig stand, I mean Ava!
Can't wait to see the other paintings you're working on.

I'm with Bev. I would love to have a long, swanlike neck but I don't think it is going to happen. Wonderful work. Ava is a Glamour Girl without peer!

Ozstuff said...

I just took a second look at your glamour girl and I have decided she looks very much like Joan Crawford. I think it is the eyes.

José said...

It's a lovely art piece.

disa said...
