Here is the quote that helped this work along:
|“All women do have a different sense of sexuality, or sense of fun, or sense of like what’s sexy or cool or tough.”|
| Angelina Jolie
Lucinda is…well she’s a bunch of fun. She loves to fish, go camping, drink beer, tell tawdry jokes and drive real fast. She is a rebel, a lover, a friend. I found an image very close to this painting in an old 40’s calendar, and I knew that one day I would paint her. After making a few changes to the background and to her figure, I got to work. It has taken me over a week of daily work to get her finished. The colors are 1950’s bright and fun but not garish like they tended to be back then. A much more modern color palette has been used to better compliment todays colors and styles, but all that old-time feeling is there. I love painting the vintage pin-up girls…why you ask? Well, because they were shaped much more, lets say round back then, the bodies were curvy, sexy, strong and honest. I was born with a 1950’s body myself, round, curvy and made for comfort and fun, not speed and hard edges. I really love to bring these lovely ladies back into the world, with just a hint of a modern twist. Let’s celebrate the sexy, let’s worship the honest. Let’s praise the strong. Let’s be free in our bodies and honor what makes us each so special as a woman. Whatever brand of woman who is today…let’s just be happy with who we are, doing what we are doing and loving every damn minute of it all.
Have a great day, and thanks so much for being here today.
Pray for peace, it begins within.
