Wig Shop Divas, 01609 mannequins with wigs



This painting was done from a photograph provided on the blog Different Strokes From Different Folks, where artists are encouraged to paint or draw their own interpretations. This is my first entry of a painting on DSFDF. The blog is hosted by Karin Jurick and I must say the photo we are all working from, a shot of the front window of a wig shop, is truly diabolical. There are no less than a dozen mannequins in the shot.
I picked these three because I liked the sunglasses on them - a nice touch. I think the one on the right reminds me of Michael Jackson.
This oil painting is on panel size 5.5x8 inches.
For purchase information please see my website.

I love what you did. I looked at the pic entertaining the thought of participating but couldn't come up with anything creative. Good job.

This is great, Carol! I agree with the Michael Jackson comment, and I thought the long-haired "blond" looked a bit like Beyonce. I was also tempted by the sunglasses.

Love the way you handled this. It is a complicated subject and you did a great job.

Nice job on the DSFDF painting. I like the three you picked...including "Michael Jackson".

I'm still working on mine. I cut it down to 7 mannequins...but as I work on it (diabolical is the right word) three would have been a better choice!

Great choice of composition...very, very nice!
I thought of Michael Jackson too when I was painting it...so funny!!

Nice job with this difficult subject! I like that you reduced the number of heads and focused in on just a few.

Very well done painting. I like the crop you chose...and yes, the one on the far right does resemble MJ!

I had to laugh at Michael Jackson. That is too funny. Very nice job on this, Carol!
