Dreaded Whipper Snappers — 12″ x 12″ oil on canvas.
The hair on the figure in this painting was inspired by this artist who makes the most fabulous creations for the head! If I were braver I would wear some, but since I am modest they would bring too much attention to me, so I guess, (and I am not so great at self psychoanalysis), but its sort of an alter ego, vicarious thing. Whatever it is, I will surely be doing some more hair inspired figures in the near future. The whipper snappers appear over in the left hand corner and smaller ones below, you can read how they came about in a previous post, but know that these particular Snappers were also inspired by her dreads! One of the best things about being an artist is I can let my imagination go wherever it wants, I make no apologies for that and you can see by her expression, neither does she!
