Here are the pieces I did for the Teeny Tiny Art Show V at Three Graces Gallery:
the ruby-throated pilot
the golden-throated warbler
the raven-throated poet
the cobalt-throated artist
the emerald-throated botanist
I came up with the idea for these paintings over a year ago. I love collars and things you can wear on your neck (I have since I was little, I thought turtlenecks were so dashing!). I was thinking about birds and how they are so often identified by the colors of their throats (i.e. the ruby throated hummingbird), and thought it would be so beautiful if women could be described by the colors of their throats. And, like birds, they'd need to be specific types of women, and so I attributed colored collars to what I think are lovely professions (some of which I wish I could do).
So these paintings are for sale at Three Graces until September 28th! All the paintings are 5x7", acrylic on masonite in white wooden frames. I hope you're all having an excellent week!! The weather's been a little hot here, but I think fall weather is coming back soon. :)
