|Mullet Ascension 8×10 watercolor|
I think I’ll have to redo this painting one day. I sort of got distracted by my hairstylist friend and her style. It was so much fun and so easy to work her shop and her into this painting. I was so excited when I came up with this idea. A levitating mullet! And my favorite is bringing in the modern to reflect the iconic painting. My favorite is the flip-flops on the floor, explaining why the client is barefoot as he floats away. I think I was getting tired of formal lettering too. I just wanted to be funky. It’s still Latin and this is the correct Latin, on the authority of a real Latin teacher, Erin Baldwin, thank you SO much for your help. It’s been so fun scheming with her. This Latin phrase translates to: “Bless the hairdressers, whose purpose it shall be to produce mullets”. This is the first painting her knowledge was able influence.
I still like this painting and I’m really happy with it but it might be a bit of a stretch to get the Biblical reference. Or maybe it’s just perfect. Discuss amongst yourselves: the modern upbeat painting with the subtlety of religious undertones. How does it work?
This will be available as a print on Etsy.com after March 10. I’ll be letting you know.
