“Retro Sophisticate” Mixed Media Art on Canvas

Retro Sophisticate

This reminds me in someways of my mom in the 60s. At least how I remember her. I remember bridge parties, strapless sheath type dresses, occasionally rubbing elbows with the well known or even famous, and plastic beaded necklaces and pearls. Flocked wallpaper, 2″ shag rugs, and pop art.

5″ x 7″ Mixed media, collage, canvas on canvas board. The figure was hand drawn and painted on a piece of “flat canvas,” then she was cut out and placed on canvas board with an acrylic painted background.

Let me tell you it was a bitch cutting out the canvas figure with right handed scissors…(-:

  1. I sure am, I have enough trouble being right handed, quite often things lose wings and limbs when I’m driving a pair of scissors 🙂 The other day I went to grab the trusty things and discovered I had somehow glued them solidly together lol. Oh well it’s probably safer for everyone around me 🙂
