Light My Fire Beach Babe

Light My Fire Beach Babe
mixed media and acrylic on canvas, 16" X 16", SOLD

The Beach Babes of the 1950s series is an exploration of acrylic paints and mixed media. I painted on paper, cloth, linoleum tile, plexiglass, and also used gel transfers to create these pieces. The cheerful images of ladies sporting on the beach came from the early 1950s. My intent was to be playful and whimsical with an eye to remembering a simpler time. (Unfortunately, in this photo, there is reflection on the plexiglass layer of this piece.)
