Artist's description:

This is a diptych, which makes ti easier to ship.It is on cradled panel and ready to hang.

When I was a young woman in the middle 50's, a "lady" would never go to the city (Chicago) without wearing gloves and a hat.

I still think that was an elegant look and certainly set a tone and attitude of something special.

In this new series I am focusing on sophisticated women wearing gloves; mostly white and perhaps some black.
I am wanting to keep the paintings loose and the figure abstracted to give the feeling a a time that is gone.
I will experiment with covering the oil paintings with clear encaustic to mystify them even more.

Gloves played an important role in 1950s fashion. Although glove sales weren’t quite what they used to be, they still sold well and most women had a few pairs to choose from.

In the late 1950s, women wore long, white gloves when they wanted to look ultra-fashionable and glamorous. This look was later popularized by Audrey Hepburn in the 1961 classic, Breakfast at Tiffany’s. But white wasn’t the only color. Some women took it the next step further and wore gloves that matched the color of their outfit.

Materials used:

oil paint, cold wax, encaustic
