Dressing for the Ball, 2001, Original 12 x 9", matted to 16 x 12", Watercolor/Pastel, sold
Notecards available

I wanted to do a much less realistic, yet figurative, sweet fetish piece.  I purposely lightened up on my application of intense color, allowing some watercolor to stand alone.  The woman in the painting on the wall is a Geisha, but in this picture, I see her hair decorations do not show.  The main woman in the piece is modeled after the famous pin-up from the 1950s.
