The "Dresses" Collection

After completing a lady in a red dress piece, I was inspired to paint more for the "Dresses" collection. I wanted to capture the beauty of women in classic dresses from different time periods. The forms of the women's bodies are simplified to emphasize the sleek dress shapes. The painting that inspired this series is titled "The Minx" and was painted in 2008. I wanted to paint more dresses after it was completed, but I was in the middle of several other projects. I came back to the series at the end of 2009 and decided, instead of giving each lady a descriptive title, to name each one by popular names of this century. All of these pieces were done in acrylic paint. Click the thumbnails below for details.
