My work is currently being exhibited through the end of the year at Aurora Vines tasting room, located at 2275 Pioneer Rd., Talent, Oregon. The tasting room is open Thursday through Sunday from 12 noon to 5 pm, and their phone number is 541-897-0592. The owner, Vicki Nickerson, has one of the top vineyards in our area, producing award winning wines. I hope you will find time to visit, see my work, and enjoy some fine southern Oregon wine!
Day Two: Lady With Wavy Hair
Hair; aren’t our attitudes about it interesting? This lady’s hair reminds me of 1950 styles. Plus, for those of us who lived through it, the 60s saw quite the experimentation in hair for men. What are your thoughts?
We link thoughts about who we are to our hair. For example:
I have wavy hair, maybe this is a self portrait? In this portrait, I think the curves of the hair emphasize her femininity and soften the angles of the portrait.
Personal Story Time
When I was in the military, I remember having a discussion with my Sergeant Major. The sergeant major had been in the Army many years and I had only been in two or three. He mentioned women’s hair length and said that one day I would understand why military women wear their hair short.
Sergeant Major was usually right about things, but on this he failed. I never quite figured out what he was talking about. Military women wear their hair various lengths, but in a traditional, conservative manner.
On to day three of thirty paintings in thirty days!
I’ve put up some antique paper bundles on Etsy – great for art/craft projects. These are in old German font. From booklets printed late 1800s, early 1900s in the USA. Some have advertising which is interesting and unique. Great inspiration.
