On it's way to Denmark



Being in the fashion industry when I was younger still lingers.
I designed many gowns for fashion show models and loved it
but I  loved painting more. This is my way of still being involved.
to now honor the great designers in the industry.
Jeanne Lavin was a wonderful prolific artist.


Jeanne Lanvin was born in Paris on 1 January 1867, the daughter of Constantin Lanvin and Sophie White. The eldest of 11 children, she became an apprentice  milliner at Madame Félix in Paris at the age of 16 and trained at dressmaker  Talbot  before becoming a milliner on the rue du Faubourg Saiint-Honore  in 1889.

In 1909, Lanvin joined the  Syndicat de la Couture , which marked her formal status as a couturier.  The clothing Lanvin made for her daughter began to attract the attention of a number of wealthy people who requested copies for their own children. Soon, Lanvin was making dresses for their mothers, and some of the most famous names in Europe were included in the clientele of her new  boutique on the  rue du Faubourg Saint-Honore.
Designs by Mme Lanvin in “La Gazette du Bon Ton”   1922
From 1923, the Lanvin empire included a dye factory in  Nanterre. In the 1920s, Lanvin opened shops devoted to home décor, menswear, furs and lingerie.

Decisions, decisions, will she take his gift or not?

Miniature Paintings
PinUp Girls Series

6 x 8 Oil Painting on Canvas


In the late 19th century, burlesque performers and actresses used photographic advertisement as business cards to promote themselves. These adverts and business cards could often be found in almost every green room , pinned-up or stuck into "frames of the looking-glasses, in the joints of the gas-burners, and sometimes lying on-top of the sacred cast-case itself. Understanding the power of photographic advertisements to promote their shows, burlesque women self-constructed their identity to make themselves visible. Being recognized not only within the theater itself but also outside challenged the conventions of women's place and women's potential in the public sphere.

PinUp Girls Series
6 x8 Oil Painting on Canvas



This is my new Miniature Paintings Series. I am having so much
fun painting these small painting of PinUps. I will also be painting

pin-up girl, also known as a pin-up model, is a model whose mass-produced pictures see wide appeal as popular culture. Pin-ups are intended for informal display, e.g. meant to be "pinned-up" on a wall. Pin-up girls may be glamour models , fashion models, or actresses.
These pictures are also known as  cheesecake photos. 
The term pin-up may also refer to drawings, paintings, and other illustrations done in emulation of these photos. The term was first attested to in English in 1941 however, the practice is documented back at least to the 1890s.
The pin-up images could be cut out of magazines or newspapers, or be from postcard or  chromo-lithographs,  and so on. Such photos often appear on calendars, which are meant to be pinned up anyway. Later, posters of pin-up girls were mass-produced and became an instant hit. As social standards changed, male subjects  also began to be featured in pin-ups.


Enjoy

Love when that happens.

Did you ever feel like you had the wind 
beneath your wings?

Enjoy! 

Did you ever know that you're my hero?
You're everything I wish I could be.
I could fly higher than an eagle,
For you are the wind beneath my wings.

Fly, fly, fly high against the sky,
So high I almost touch the sky.
Thank you, thank you,
Thank God for you, the wind beneath my wings.


See Bette perform this beautiful song Here

11 x 14 Oil Painting of Interior on Canvas

Poor Frida. She worked so hard and then had a horrific accident that
changed her life forever. She painted in bed on an easel that her mother
had specially made for her.  She was alone so much that she used a mirror
and painted many portraits of herself and still life's of food and animals
that she could see immediately around her.

Later in life she married the famous Diego Rivera who encouraged her
as an artist and stood behind her. She seems to have been a very sting woman
in so many ways and had to will to keep going.

his is a tranquil room that I can see her relaxing in with many of her works
adoring the walls around her. Paintings, books and flowers surround her
in the Mexican themed room to give her peace and tranquility.

Enjoy!


"I never paint dreams or nightmares. I paint my own reality."

– Frida Kahlo


Artist Frida Kahlo was born on July 6, 1907, in Coyocoán, Mexico City, Mexico. Considered one of Mexico's greatest artists, Frida Kahlo began painting after she was severely injured in a bus accident. Kahlo later became politically active and married fellow communist artist Diego Rivera in 1929. She exhibited her paintings in Paris and Mexico before her death in 1954.
On September 17, 1925, Kahlo was riding in a bus that collided with a trolley car. She suffered serious injuries as a result of the accident, including a broken spinal column, a broken  collar bone, broken ribs, a broken pelvis , eleven fractures in her right leg, a crushed and dislocated right foot, and a dislocated shoulder. Also, an iron handrail pierced her abdomen and her uterus  compromising her reproductive capacity.
After the accident, Kahlo abandoned the study of medicine to begin a painting career. She painted to occupy her time during her temporary immobilization. Her self-portraits were a dominant part of her life when she was immobile for three months after her accident. Kahlo once said, "I paint myself because I am so often alone and because I am the subject I know best."
Her mother had a special easel made for her so she could paint in bed, and her father lent her his box of oil paints and some brushes.
Drawn from personal experiences, including her marriage, her  miscarriages, and her numerous operations, Kahlo's works are often characterized by their suggestions of pain.
Kahlo created at least 140 paintings, along with dozens of drawings and studies. Of her paintings, 55 are self-portraits which often incorporate symbolic portrayals of physical and psychological wounds. She insisted, "I never painted dreams. I painted my own reality."

Aside from the 1939 acquisition by the Louvre, Kahlo's work was not widely acclaimed until decades after her death. Often she was remembered only as Diego Rivera’s wife. It was not until the end of the 1970s and the early 1980s, when the artistic style in Mexico known as Neomexicanismo began, that she became well-known to the public.
As a young artist, Kahlo communicated with the Mexican painter, Diego Rivera, whose work she admired, asking him for advice about pursuing art as a career. He recognized her talent. He encouraged her artistic development and they began an intimate relationship. They were married in 1929, despite the disapproval of Frida's mother.
