Dress Code

22x30 watercolor on 140 lb cold press paper, a design composition I made up awhile back using parts of a dress catalog advertisement, one of my red amaryllis and my cockatoo paintings.  Along with the cut up dress images, I squeezed in iconic evergreen trees here and there.  I moved parts around on a large 5x9 index card until I got a pleasing arrangement, then drew it from there. Each abstract segment is its own little painting.  The large black pendant necklace on a grey and red suit gave the painting its title of  Dress Code.
