This is #5 in a series of paintings. “Dames Drinking Hootch” So far it’s #5 of 5, but we don’t know how many will ultimately be in the series. I know I’ve got at least two more planned. This particular one I’ve temporarily titled “Bubblegum Lady”.
We did this one after taking a long hiatus, what with my fellow painters busy graduating from college and all. But, we’re back now, and we’ve got a new motto for ourselves as artists; “Momentum”.
That this one is finally done is a bit of a feat in itself. This was the first image I had tried to do with the process we’re doing now. I tried it myself. I’ve since learned a lot about painting. For one thing, I learned that there’s usually one side of the canvas that’s prepped for paint (it’s called gesso… basically, it means it already has a layer of white paint on it.) If you don’t use this side (like I didn’t) the paint doesn’t really apply itself the way you want it. It feels like trying to paint on a couch cushion.
So, I had this painting halfway done and then it sat in my living room for about a year. Then we did four other paintings, got our technique down and returned to this one. We changed up the color scheme completely, it was previously a green drink, black and white hair and pink face. So, underneath this painting is the original failed attempt.
If you saw a previous post of the painting Blue and Grey Lady, you saw it had a watermark on it. I’m going to post this one without a water mark because it’s easier to see the image, and because I love and trust you all. And, although I’ve no reason to, I love and trust the Void. Trust that you’ll do the right thing and if you want a print, or the original, you’ll contact me.
2′ x 4′ Original painting. Acrylic paint on Canvas: $500
2′ x 4′ Canvas print: $200
2′ x 4′ Paper Print (high quality paper, not just plain ol’ paper paper) $70
But, maybe a four foot tall painting is too big for your liking. We thought of that. And, we thought that a 1/2 scale would still be a nice size, so:
1′ x 2′ Canvas Print: $120
1′ x 2′ Paper Print: $45
Shipping is not included in the prices listed above. That cost has yet to be determined, and will probably be based on shipped to where and the weight.
