The Painted Bra Art Project

This is my fourth year of involvement in The Painted Bra Art Project and I couldn’t thank Anna Smith Braden enough. It has become the highlight of my year and an honor to be included as a featured BRArtist.

The Painted Bra Art Project will include several awareness events and BRAsterpiece painting parties throughout the year leading up to our a live exhibit in October 2014.

We are busily working the details for the live exhibit and they will be provided as soon as everything is finalized.

Inspiration

“Normality is a paved road; It’s comfortable to walk, but no flowers grow on it.”

-Vincent Van Gogh

Faith, Hope, and Wisdom 2

The painting is done on an 18 x 18 x 1.5″ canvas. I created texture on it by building up thin layers of modeling paste and gel medium mixed together.

I attached three hooks and sculpted the modeling paste around them to create a more organic look. I arranged them on the canvas so that the bra could be easily hung.

I stiffened the bra with some gesso into a shape that would work with my plan to abstract Van Gogh’s famous Irises painting. The painting was done using acrylic paints. I applied a gloss varnish to the canvas and the bra separately to keep the bra mobile.

Viola! The finished BRAsterpiece.
