Life got so much busier this last month, busier than usual, so what I hoped would be a Daily Sketch was downgraded, temporarily, to a Weekly Sketch.
But this one, she may be worth a week’s usual offerings. The Okra Flower sketch is a study for what is about to be an 8×4′ mural. I’m painting her for an opening in Rivertown, Louisiana where she will be displayed during Festa Italiana, the Italian heritage Festival being held in April.
Come see her in person- she will not only be smoking-hot as Sophia Loren, but proceeds from her *tax deductible* sale go to the Rivertown Arts Council, and artistic improvements in Rivertown, a designated Main Street America.
This yellow okra flower close up is an acrylic on MDF sample that shows what the finished painting will “feel” like, color and texture-wise.
Paintings from other local artists will also be available, not to mention one of America’s favorite cuisine types- Italian!
