Flappers – Prohibition Series
March 25, 2019
I spent part of this weekend planning the rest of my Prohibition series. There will be 14 paintings in all (including one set of 9 6×6 (two of which are already done and posted here), one triptych of the vague flappers featured here dancing the night away, and various other musicians, scenes, and 1920’s fun.
I thoroughly enjoyed researching some 1920’s era photographs for these pieces. After planning, I did get the canvases prepped and the flappers basic placement blocked in. Sooo fun!!! Stay tuned!
