Art: Little Blue Dress by Artist Patience
"Little Blue Dress".....

Back in the day, in the '80's when I was in high school, my girlfriends and I developed a penchant for vintage clothing.  We would often comb thrift stores and garage sales, searching for particularly good specimens, and showing off our precious scores.  I can well recall one dress in particular, that I estimated to be from the late 50's/early 60's, which I felt incredibly lucky to have stumbled across by chance at a rummage sale, and dearly loved.  Baby blue, with a sweetheart neckline, a full skirt and wide white sash --  this is my homage to an elegant Mid-Century dress I once thrifted, wore, and adored...., and which has long since been lost.....

Painted in acrylics on an 8.5 x 5.5 hand-fashioned canvas-panel I constructed myself with salvaged materials, with a built-in frame incorporated as an element of the overall piece......
