18×24 oil painting. This was a collaborative effort between me, my husband Jonathan and Lea Hanna. We came up with the idea after looking at a book about the illustrator’s from the 1940′s and 50′s. Lea Hanna is an avid photographer and will be studying photojournalism for the next few years. Jonathan did some research on WW2 posters, and he came up with a list of taglines. Here are a few he wrote:
“There’s more than one way we can shoot!”
“Grab your Cannon, gals, and shoot for the Navy!”
“I WANT YOUR CAMERA for the U.S. Navy”
“Women, get out of the kitchen and take pictures!”
“It takes more than ONE MAN to do this job. IT TAKES A WOMAN!”
“Focus on a career in the NAVY”
“I flashed the boys in the NAVY”
“Needed: brave female photographers for the U.S. NAVY.”
“I can lick ‘em with my camera!”
This portrait is quite unique, and I cannot wait to do another poster-style painting.
It was a busy and fun night. Thanks to all who came to view. My camera, of course, ran out of batteries, so I have just a couple shots. I had 16 pieces hung and also some smaller matted originals on the table. The show is all taken down and back at my house, so if you did not get to see the show, come on over and take a look.
Ahhhh! Jonathan and I hung the show at Studio b last night. Please come downtown and take a look. Tomorrow it will be gone. I will post some photos and let you know if anything exciting happens.
Here is a look at a small still life that is hanging:
This was such a good month. I am preparing for a gallery showing of my paintings, and really I think I have more than I need to fill the space. Remember, Friday night only, for Gallery Night at Studio b you can see some new paintings. Here is a sneak peak:
Right now I am preparing artwork for a display at Studio B. October 3rd is Gallery Night in Pensacola, and all the galleries downtown stay open late for a block party with art, music, and hors d’oeuvres. Please plan to come visit Studio B located at:
- 208 S. Alcaniz Street
- Historic Downtown Pensacola
I would just like to say thank you to the Barnes family for treating us to a wonderful day on the water.
