Brown Dress
paper, acrylic and wax on board
10 x 5 in.

These paintings are part of a series of works inspired by my collection of handmade vintage dresses that I purchased from thrift stores. I don’t have opportunity to wear many of my dresses and started to paint them with the thought that they may have been purchased not only for their value as clothing but for their uniqueness. What I’ve found is that the dresses often take upon personalities of their own.
