Good Morning all y’all,
If you would like an original Gator Girl painting, but need to wait a while for the opportunity, there are prints available on Etsy. My prints start at $30 and there is a special going on for the month of April. Go ahead and check it out. You can also send me your email address through my email account at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send you an email when I have a new painting, OR you can also see all my paintings in progress by following my blog.
And thank you, thank you for reading my blog!
I have completed 3 paintings.
The original of Monsieur Gator was painted on commission and is not available.
The collector asked for a French Gator. Painted in French around the outside edge of the canvas are the words “Strolling at Sunset, Dreaming of z Camembert”.
I listened to Chante France on the Internet. M. Gator loved the music. It seemed to put him in the mood for a portrait. What an attitude he has!
La Femme Fatal is mixed media, 12 x 36 inches painted on wood. She is standing on the street in the French Quarter after the parades have passed. She still has “it” after all these years. She sells for $800.
The Mardi Gras Muse or as MMMM calls her, Princess Masketier is mixed media on reclaimed wood, with a reclaimed wooden frame. The original is $800. The frame is part of the painting, so a small portion of the frame was also photographed.*
There are words about Mardi Gras running through her hair, and a 3 dimensional king cake baby. She is wearing a raven mask for my sister who owns Raven Wisdom Studio in Chico, California. (She is a clay artist.) The music is from the song “Mardi Gras Mambo”.
Mardi Gras Muse started out clearly in my mind’s eye, but took over a month to complete.
Now that these 3 paintings are complete, I will be starting a new painting from scratch. The options are swirling around me as I type.
Please stay tuned,
All my love from an ever-opening heart,
