Queen of the Flower Children

“Queen of the Flower Children”
12″ x 36″

Inspired by an exhibit proposal by the fiber arts group at the d’Art Center I began to think about a theme that centers around clothing. My idea is that, “If the clothes make the man, what do your clothes say about you?”
I began a series of paintings and this is one of the first images I created. I began this painting with the idea of a straight-forward young woman posed in a casual, flowing gown. Yet by the time I finished the piece she had come to represent more than just a girl, she is the Queen of that natural, organic love and connection with Mother Earth.
