Just dropped my “Not Your Gramma’s Doily Collection” paintings off at the Rooster, 303 Bank Street, Ottawa. The owner is big on supporting local artists so my friend Brittany and I are having an Art Show there for a month, along with a couple other artists. We will be having a vernissage next Tuesday night, July 24, 2012 from 7pm to 10pm.
For all of the paintings I used vintage doilies as stencils. I have been collecting them from e-bay. They are hard to find and have sold from my Etsy shop almost faster then I can post them. I have kept a few for myself and have decided to share the wealth and do a giveaway in honour of my first show. I will choose a random person from all comments left on this post between now and the showing next Tuesday.
Here is a sample of one of the pieces that will be there. It is called “C’est Joli”.
All of the background papers are Paris related and the dress has a beautiful vintage rhinestone button at the waist. Something I could see myself wearing strolling around the streets of Paris. This girl is voluptuous, just like me, haha.
Come join us for a drink, there is nothing better than a bar full of friends.
