"Plastic Perfect"

An advertising image of the high-end fashion brand Balmain for plastic boots from their Spring Summer 2018 collection (mind you, do not think some sad-looking plastic rain boots but some very fashionable high-heeled plastic ones) prompted my imagination for this painting.

From that high-end level I worked my way down, so to speak, and I incorporated more everyday text and aspirations – “Making up for Monday,” “61,” and “Any Given Sunday” (the last one repeated in cursive in several places throughout the canvas).

To bring it back to the original inspiration, “Plastic Perfect” and “Paris” complete my painting into something that resembles a collage-like artwork.
