Title: We Wear Short Skirts
Size: 8 x 8
Medium: Acrylic on canvas
"We Wear Short Skirts" is dedicated to the sport of Tennis. I think I was around 12 when I picked up a racket for the first time...and I admit I first started playing because I liked the cute outfits. I eventually played all 4 years of high school (well minus 1/2 my senior year due to a sprained ankle.)
On my 16th birthday, instead of getting my driver's license I was playing in the State tournament. On the way home, the team stopped off for dinner and they surprised me with a birthday cake! That was an awesome day! I'm sad that I haven't been able to play for the last 4 years due to back issues...it sucks getting old. This painting is dedicated to all of my fellow tennis enthusiasts who love to play any chance they get.
About the Storyteller Series:
Have you ever thought about your life as a unique piece of art? We all come from different backgrounds, have different experiences and make different decisions – each of these layers creating the life that only we can live. I’m celebrating my 40th birthday which has caused me to reminisce on some of my favorite memories. And, I couldn’t think of a more fitting way to celebrate than by turning these memories into a series of abstract paintings titled, “Storyteller.” This series is 50% art and 50% story.
