Audrey-esque

A classy alley beauty, in my books.

I’ve seen and posted this artist’s (Hello Kristen) work before.

It’s always been like torn wall papers.

This time there is a woman in a hat in front of the wallpaper.

Had some trouble with sun coming up over the top, so I had to filter a few shots.

  1. I love this nod to the past. Elegance and simplicity – a dynamic combination. I remember Frances (my mother) wearing hats and long gloves up to her elbows in black or white, depending upon the time of day. Another marvelous post.

    1. Yes, before daily showers, daily shampoos and modern hair products, women went once a week to the hairdresser (provided they could afford it, or their lifestyle allowed it).
      Hats were the answer to the call for beauty, and wigs to a degree.
      Also, there were not as many household conveniences, women had more children and their hands paid a big price.
      Style via hats and gloves, allowed all woman to be equal.

      1. A ha ha ha….. I laugh because most people who have met me say I have the ‘elegance’ of a goat!!!!!! Aries (my sign) may have something to do with it!!!!!!! I’m sure though that elegance fits you perfectly!!!!!! ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

        1. Well… then you are probably an Angora Goat!
          Elegance suits me to a T… until I spill the wine all over the table!!! LOL

          1. Angora Goat… exactly… and gosh they’re elegant!!!! 😂🤣😂 On wine… well, that’s a sign of a person who likes to share, isn’t it?!!!!!! xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo
            In any case… we know we’re perfect! 😉 xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo🤗

                1. Yes, it is.
                  Even though the Tango was the first inspiration for this Art Gown, it doesn’t have to be in the title.
                  I’m now working on a name for it. I do like the words Tango… Heart … Dance .. Passion …. all of which I’ve never used in an Art Gowns’ name.
                  The dance originates basically in Buenos Aires… a dance of the peasants.
                  I’m reading about the history of the Tango & Argentina. Let me know if you have any thoughts. xoxo
                  Something nostalgic could work with Tango… or ??

    1. I am well! TY for the lovely compliment.

      I will say, when I’m in the alleys looking for art, I am one of the better looking denizens. LOL
      Nonetheless, I have talked with some very unlikely, and interesting people.
      Great to see you back in action!

Speak your art mind!
