Don't Hate Me Because I am Beautiful

8 x 10 inches
acrylic and pen on canvas
gallery wrapped and ready to hang

I don't know how many remember that old commercial when the (beautiful) model looks at the camera and says to the viewing audience
"Don't hate me because I'm Beautiful"
I think she was selling shampoo or something.
Well, this bulldog's pose totally made me think about that commercial ......looking at the camera as if to say "Yes, yes, I am beautiful" Check out my ETSY store

The title of this piece is
12 x 36
An angel wing on canvas using antique books, hymns and love letters.  One of the hymns was called "Transformed"
The title is appropriate in two ways, because the paper has been transformed into a lovely wind, but also because this painting was finished before.  It was a highly textured wing on a brown background, but after looking at it for a bit, I decided to take it a few steps beyond, transforming it into one of my favorites!   Sometimes you only think you are finished!!
