Art of the Day: Wednesday September 29, 2010

Lauren Dons the Tiara (Rip of the art of Lauren Cole)

- by Dawn Lee Thompson

This week's theme: People-Pleasing Art

Last week we said that the variety art and artists here at EBSQ meant that among the selections for Art of the Day, there was something to please everyone. On the outside chance that one or two of you did not find anything that pleased, this week we are once again presenting an eclectic assortment of art from the EBSQ Galleries.


Art: Lauren Dons the Tiara (Rip of the art of Lauren Cole) by Artist Dawn Lee Thompson
This is a portrait of the lovely Lauren, inspired by her wonderful recent paintings, "Bunny Girl" and "I Hear Lamb Tastes Like Chicken". Lauren's skill with a paintbrush is inspiring, and her work is both skillful, "serious" and delightfully humorous-an unexpected and not common combination! In this piece, I wanted to depict Lauren as the wise queen/leader archetype, which is typical of my own figural work, (female figures calling up feminine archetypes). In homage to Lauren's recent work, I attempted to add a touch of the unexpected, whimsical, and humorous.
