This pretty lady in pink was inspired by a vintage photo. I believe it's Vogue. The photo was black in white without any flowers. I also made my own interpretation of her face.
I love vintage fashion! I grew up making paper dolls and admiring my mom's framed hand-painted prints from the Godey's Lady Book and Magazine. And of course my favorite movie is
Gone With The Wind! The fashions were so beautiful back then.
This original oil painting is on an 11x14 ampersand gesso board. I ended up naming her
"Blushing Anticipation"…a combination of help from my Facebook friends!
