Faces of My Not-So-Far Future?
I've been playing with this little painting on and off for a week, and may still go back to tweak some parts of the ladies' swimming suits. I found a public domain photo from what looked like the 1960s, cropped and played with it, and really fell in love with these three sassy women. I kept thinking they reminded me of my aunt's water aerobics classes that she's led for years. I have attended water exercise classes, but really, I don't like them much. Slug that I am, I'd rather sit in the shade outside and watch other people in the water, or maybe just paint them.
I painted this for a miniature show; it's only five by five inches, painted in acrylic on gessoed mat board. I have a friend who keeps saying these little paintings have potential for being licensed - maybe used on mugs or cups or bags or something. We shall see if that actually happens.
