for the love of vintage, painting, and dresses

For the longest time I thought that in order to express myself through my art, I had to paint a specific, clever something, in a certain way, using certain colors. I am starting to understand that just sitting down and painting what I love in the style that I love painting in expresses me and how I feel better that the perfect symbolic composition. The act of creating is therapy for me. The colors that I choose make me feel a certain way. I love these dresses- I love what vintage means and I love that there are so many stories behind them. I wonder who wore them, and who will wear them next and what the dress means to them. I love the elegance of those eras and the pride that people took back then in how they looked and the quality of the clothing that they made and wore. I hope to bring a little bit of those feelings to other people by painting these dresses!
