"Dorothy, all grown up" 18"x24" NFS (Private Collection)
This was a painting I did for an advertisement of a jewelry store, Bailen Jewelers, that ran in the Louisville Magazine in 1997. Dorothy, (from Kansas), is all grown up and no longer wears ruby slippers but wears ruby pendents. Do you see the yellow brick road and Emerald City?
This painting is one of the pieces I have a Retrospective show, with an opening reception this Sunday August 1, 2 pm-4 pm at JCC here in Louisville and it will run from August 1 - September 7. The show spans 38 years of work and includes fashion illustrations, national advertising pieces and personal works. If you are in the area I would love it if you could be there for the opening reception.
