My absolute favorite piece of art.
All the figures in this painting were actual sculptures that we had created over the years.
The close up is of "Ethel and her kids".
The matradee actually held a long feather and was named, "The tickle monster".
About 15 years ago, I was invited to participate in an design instillation titled, "Tablescapes" for the Downtown Roseville Merchants Association in Sacramento, California. Each artist was given a room, area or empty window throughout a shopping mall and were asked to create a fantasy environment for a table setting. It was an exciting show for me to participate in because I was in the company of two of my favorite UC Davis design instructors, Dolph Gotelli and Jo Ann Stabb.
This painting reflects what I had set up for that show.
