Marigolds.



Ms. Mary Gold
9 x 10 in.
oil on board

Here is my contribution to the Autumn Society of Philadelphia show, DIA DE LOS MUERTOS, that opens this Friday at Proximity Gallery in Philly. My concept for this painting came from the belief that the marigolds are thought to attract the souls to these offerings. I used one of my favorite old photographs that I collect from flea markets for reference. The Photograph is of a victorian woman sitting in a field of flowers which I "brought to life" in my piece. The opening this friday is from 6-9 pm at Proximity Gallery in Fishtown, 2434 East Dauphin Street Philly Pa.

Also, had a nice little feature last week over at Illustrophile, check it out here.
