Art: Star-n-Jars: A Tribute to Dolly, Loretta and Tammy by Artist Patience


(Dolly Parton * Loretta Lynn * Tammy Wynette)

My entry for April's Nibblefest Art Contest (NFAC), the theme being "Things in Jars", features a fun trio of wee portraits painted in loving tribute to three classic Stars of Country Music:  

Dolly Parton, Loretta Lynn, and Tammy Wynette

Painted in oils upon three 4" x 6" found, 'mason jar'-shaped wooden plaques.

"Things in Jars":  I had been looking forward to this particular theme!  Some time ago, I picked up three wee, 'mason jar'-shaped wood plaques at a 2nd hand shop. Clueless as to how I might ever use them at the time, I was intrigued nevertheless and so brought them home.  Imagine how delighted I was to later find out "Things in Jars" was an upcoming Nibblefest theme...!  

So fine, I now knew exactly what I would be painting ON..., while still stumped as to what my exactly subject matter should BE. I kicked around a few concepts, when "Stars-in-Jars" randomly came to mind.  Hmmm, perhaps a fun trio of celebrity portraits...?  But which celebrities exactly???  That's when it hit me: What Stars could possibly be more fitting featured upon "Mason Jars", than Dolly, Loretta and Tammy -- three beloved classic country music Divas, all of whom rising from extraordinarily humble, hard-scrabble beginnings to become beloved, world-renown talents, thanks to their amazing singing/songwriting and musicianship. This small set of "Stars-n-Jars" is my own tribute to these legendary women.
