Day 32: The Good Wife

100 Paintings 100 Days

The Good WifeI love pearls on other girls. They seem very vintage to me. I can almost talk myself into them, and in fact I have a necklace but they are grey faux-pearls, not the classic pearl white. Some people just can’t fully commit I guess.

Pearls convey an attitude to me. Something about them on a dress form says “Happy Housewife”, practically perfect in every way. I painted it a little tongue in cheek – is the good wife a myth or a mannequin? An ideal to aspire to, or one to shelve with great grandma’s photos? A little of both?

Am I completely off on my own wild tangent? Perhaps, but it’s nice in the rabbit hole. Come on in, I’ll save you a seat.
