Deco Style

Day Seventeen-30 Paintings in 30 days
8"x6" Oil on board
Number seventeen...what to paint?  I have been looking around the house for  different things to paint for this challenge and this is what I came up costume I wore to celebrate Art Deco Weekend a couple of years ago. Napier City  was rebuilt in the Art deco style after the massive 1931 earthquake. Every February we celebrate  and everyone dresses in deco style, it's a fun weekend with lots of different events!!


  1. This is a terrific painting, and nice to hear the story associated with the dress!

  2. I love the painting, too, and the story. Thanks for the link to Napier City - really interesting!


Thanks for sharing your thoughts and comments, I love reading them...they keep me inspired!
