Painting of the Week – Fashion Academy

A Fun Idea

A Fun Idea

At the Fashion Academy there was much confusion as these chickens practiced their first runway move. One is even going the wrong way and another is hiding in a curtain of grass.  Don’t miss the hoofed judges peaking over the fence unbeknownst to the birds. A fashion designer might say “We chose Sienna as the color of the season against a variety of patterned neutrals.”

Sometimes all you need is a fun idea to get a painting going. This really happened. The horses beyond the fence, you catch a glimpse of their legs, actually walked up to watch these chickens going by. I was there at the right time! Fashion Academy spawned many new ideas. Gouache and glazes were used to make the birds stand out.
