Did you ever feel like you were sculpting an Art Gown?
Well, that’s exactly how I felt building Queen Isabella.
Dedicated to my sweet friend Isabella: I said to her and T, I want Isabella in the title, but with another word.
Without hesitation, T said “Queen”. Without hesitation, it made sense to me.
Isabella is creative, and supports all arts. She’s a wife, a mother and devoted to her family & friends. She throws dinner parties fit for the Art Gowns.
She challenged me back, and gave me a very textured dress. The colour made me think of a purple peacock, if such a creature exists.
To make mock feathers, random strips were cut from a vintage curtain lace. Acrylic paint with fabric medium was daubed on irregularly. This created a visual texture. Partial ruching created volume, and a feeling of ruffled feathers.
Flowers were made, using leftover bits of the painted lace.
For her first dinner party with all of the Art Gowns, Queen Isabella has decided on live guitar music.
