Artist's description:

In this painting we see a woman from the 1920's with subtle copies of ads for gloves from a Sears catalog. I kept the background abstracted and used loose brush strokes of the figure to give a contemporary feel to a vintage subject. This is on a cradled panel and needs no framing.

I choose oil and cold wax to keep the texture of the brush visible.
Have you ever tried to do anything with gloves on? It’s difficult. But women then found a way around the problem by slipping their hands out of the finger-part, and popping them out the opening. To this day they are a cultural signifier that remains shorthand for class. And it’s the subtle interpretation and manipulation of what that can mean, that makes them such fascinating fashion watching.

Materials used:

oil, cold wax
