Playboy Lighter

I love these parasols. They're the perfect compliment to the 'party' mood this lighter conjures up. A Chinese New Year party at the 'Mansion' maybe? This was painted in ambient light thus no strong shadows. It needs final highlights on the lighter and more color in the parasol and a touch of dark to make the parasol 'sit' down. Some of my blog paintings are featured in Holiday Small Works at Oceanside 17 Studio and Gallery in Hull which is a sweet little space just next to Saporito's restaurant on Rockland Circle. Franny Andahazy is the artist/gallery owner who also throws parties as a business. Stop by and visit her and check out the work of a number of the South Shore's finest painters. Thanks for the visits and the comments. I really enjoy reading them and again, it's more fun to paint if people are looking.

We're looking, girl! And I have stuff there, too! I'm so sorry I missed the Opening Party. Her Openings are the very BEST! :)

As a "girl" of the 50s and an enlightened person of the 60s and a cranky old grandma of today, I'm surprised at how much pleasure I'm getting from two of the symbols I most dislike---remember I'm a parasol fan.

Lorna, I'm guessing the cigarette lighter as a reminder of slavery to smoking and the Playboy symbol as a reminder of the cookie cutter Playboy Bunnies? Love your description of yourself. If you haven't visited Lorna's blog do so. She is very funny.
