Art: Dali's 'Stache by Artist Patience

My entry for the June 2015's Nibblefest Art Contest (Theme: "Surrealism") features a portrait painted in tribute to a certain famed Surrealist.  I selected my subject matter knowing he would work also well for EBSQ's June exhibit, "Portrait of the Artist".  

Dali (1904-1989) was known nearly as much for his outlandish hijinks (his mustache even had its own book!) as for his unique artwork.  His grandiose antics did often divide people -- even today folks seem to either really love him....or really not.   He never did seem overly concerned about his critics however, continuing to do his own thing throughout his life.  My portrait was painted as a little  affectionate nod to his eccentricity and attention-getting style....

The following was my NFAC entry statement...:

~"Dali's 'Stache"~

My entry for this month's Nibblefest Art Contest (NFAC),  the theme for June being 'SURREALISM', features a portrait painted in tribute to a certain late, great painter of the Surrealist genre.  Some may recall how Salvador Dali often liked to creatively groom his long, handlebar mustache into ever more interesting silhouettes -- I myself just had fun imagining what it might have been like to take that particular personal predilection of his to the next level.....

(Note this piece is also entered into the June 2015 "Portrait of the Artist" EBSQ online exhibit).
