This fashion model is understandably from a long time ago. I found a picture from a 1950’s advertisement featuring a model fashioned with the then growing in popularity "Beehive" hairdo as she highlights pricey jewelry.
It is from this 1950’s advertisement for fine jewelry that I created a painting for Canvas #11 in my series of “Twenty Questions”/“Animal, Vegetable, or Mineral?” paintings. An explanation of this painting project I created can be found in the previous blogs linked below:
7,8,9, and 10: “Skateland USA”, “Strawberry Fields in an Octopus's
Garden”, “Boxes and Butterflies
Under a Billowy Cloud for Canvas
#9”, and “Sea Turtle Café”
Approaching canvas #11 during this October of 2022, I took the liberty to adjust the model’s exclusive jewelry collection to keep in theme with the spirit of Halloween season that is upon us. Through a little “on-line shopping” to see what is currently on the market, I gathered a collection of some high-end jewelry to paint and shine light on Spooky Season.
Using the jewelry as symbols for the collective “Animal, Vegetable, and Mineral” featured elements in this multi canvas painting project, a big pearl and solid gold helped to define the diamond studded spider earrings and create an “animal” feature.
For the “vegetable” element, of course this season’s most popular vegetable, the pumpkin, is elevated through the rarest and most expensive of sapphire gems, the Padparadscha Sapphire Stone ( also known as Orange Sapphire ), to create a sparkling and stunning pumpkin carriage brooch.
For the third mined mineral gem, an actual symbol of a “mineral” in the form of an American flag styled charm bracelet. Similar to the other jewelry pieces adorning this lady, a Swarovski red, white, and blue exclusive crystal charm import which I found online also carries additional seasonal meaning with the patriotic 2022 “first Tuesday in November” vote casting season coming on the heels of “Spooky Season”.

I am a 'self-taught' artist who can hardly remember a day when I wasn't in the process of creating something... Thanks for visiting my site where I can share some of my work.
