Superstition




This started out as the IF 'hat' theme. I didn't finish it in time. So when 'scale' was the theme for the following week, I painted the a smaller version on a coffee cup. Well, that didn't work out either, I couldn't get it done in time. Now this week is 'superstition'. More adaptation was needed.
An ancient superstition = if a woman sits down at a bar with a glass of wine and notices a cup which is painted with her image, then she will gradually disappear.

Acrylic paint on an 8x8 inch board.

Okay, she always has to sit at the same table on the same day of the week... And that's her lucky hat.

Good to see you and those rich colors back.

Beautiful painting. I like the strong graphic design. The transparency of colors adds interest. Interesting ancient superstition :-)
