painting a day- i'm mad!

 Well my painting a day is ode to Mad Men. First of all I can not get enough of the show- I just love the style and the drama.  I also love their creative department and how they look like they have hand drawn story boards and I simple just die over all the outfits..
 It's so funny watching the pregnant ladies drink and smoke- I am guessing they didn't know better back then?  I am only in season 3- so don't spoil it for me!
I didn't think my painting a day yesterday was finished so I repainted it with a mad men theme :)  I repainted the lady mostly as a naughty housewife face from the 50's with a modern twist with her body and body language.   I always think the people in Mad Men are like people from the late 50's with a wink.  I also wanted to keep some abstract shapes in the back ground to give it a little bit more depth.
Happy Saturday. :)

Anytime I see that show or references to it I want to go out and buy a collared a-line dress in a super-bright color. Maybe I'll just do it now.

Finally! An Art blog I can't actually get into. (skimmed through other posts but commenting on this one!)

Madmen is awfully perfect...Despite the way they treat women, everything else is painted so brilliantly in that show.

I gotta love the bulldog's face! Hahaha. I find some amusing jape on his face like he knew something about the lady's neighborhood that we don't. :)

You my friend, are brilliant!

And my Nanny smoked through both of her pregnancies. It's amazing what they didn't know at the time.
