DOROTHY PAINTINGS

The Dorothy Paintings

 

A random find of a 1960’s “Wizard of Oz” coloring book, along with my love of Italian fresco painting, inspired the Dorothy paintings.

 

I chose to paint Dorothy on a heroic scale and adjusted my palette to fresco hues.

 

I also choses to adhere fabric, pieces of tomboy flannel and kerchiefs, to form shapes and clothing, and for emphasis.
