It's a Colorful Life...

Original artwork by Me

As an artist, color has always been a big part of my life and my art. One of the things I enjoyed most about making art was experimenting with color, shape, form, and texture.

So I thought I'd take an artistic approach to today's post. My canvas is the little black dress. My palette consists of the dollups of color that can be added with a colorful shoe, the rich hue of a handbag, or the intricacy of an embellishment.

Enjoy, my darlings.

That Guiseppe Zanotti shoe is gorgeous. If only I could have a pair in my closet! Cute post.

Your artwork is stunning and creative! Nice picks of bags and shoes-the last clutch is awesome!!

Fashion Addict: I have not been disappointed yet by Guiseppe's designs. They are positively stunning.

Sharon Rose: Thank you for the compliment. Isn't that a beautifully rich color? Fabulistic!

Hi Cheryl Lynn,

I love your artwork: the paintings and the sketch. You should put more up. I love Falchi bag. Such a lovely color and the red Zerene pump is hot. I'm so not a heel girl, I can barely walk in them. I still love to look at the shoes.

C, lovely love! Thank you for the amazing comment. Got me blushing over here!

Those Zanotti "Ikat"'s are beautiful! I love your sketch, I wish I could draw more than just a dang lopsided stick figure or smilie face! Hahaha...

Hope you're well, love!

Hi Shell: Thanks for dropping by and for the sweet comment about my work. I'll be putting up more later on. It's kind of inspired me to create more. Nothing like coming full circle. :)

Laurel: Hello my Lover-lee. You are so funny and lovely and glamorous. Have a great weekend.

Lady Melbourne said...

Wow Cheryl, look at that illustration!
Can we see more please?
I'm so impressed, you really should post more if you have them.

Cheryl Lynn said...

Lady Melbourne: Thank you so much for the encouraging words. I will be posting more, both on this blog and my other blog. I'm happy to have the time to do it.

Thanks again my lover-lee.

Have a great weekend.

Your artwork is fantastic! I love the mix of colours and media! Is painting just for pleasure or do you sell your work as well?

Thank you so much Brigette. I visited your profile, and I can't wait for you to start posting. I need all the company I can get and I think that you would bring your own unique vision to the fashion blog-o-sphere.
