"The Silver Comb" SOLD
Acrylic on Textured Gallery Wrapped Canvas 18" x 24"
Pablo Picasso said "I begin with an idea and then it becomes something else." That is exactly what happened in the above painting. I've forgotten how it began other than adding lots of texture. It ended up looking like a Spanish lady and when I Googled Spanish Lady I found the Celtic Woman group singing this on YouTube and in the lyrics it mentions her silver comb. I used Lascaux Perlacryl Iridescent Acrylics along with regular acrylics and it makes it very difficult to photograph but gives the painting a different metallic pearl look. I've had these paints for years and never know how to use them.
Today I'm putting a coat of protective varnish on the painting to take to the Art in the Park show Saturday at the Arlington Highlands.
The Arlington Highlands and F6 Gallery presents Art in the Park. The event features over 100 various artists from the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex combined with the retailers of Arlington Highlands to offer the community a great day of fun for all to entertain. We have been given a parking space to set up and a table and a chair and that's probably what my space will be. There won't be any selling but a day of browsing and visiting. There may be some wind so we're already been advised to bring some rocks. I'm not an outdoor show kind of gal so this should be interesting but I invite anyone out in the area to stop by and say hello. In the booth next to mine, 134, will be Canvas by Canvas so we will get some peep time. Come anytime from 12:00 to 5:00 PM.
