Story

Oil on canvas, sealed yarn & burlap, collage

The girl here with her long, wavy, princess-like hair is a bit of an ‘echo’, styled after another LiShinault called “Bedtime Story”. In both works, the young ladies each wear bunny slippers, and feline headpieces…. a powerful tiger head. This one has a large amount of energy that is 'carried' all around by a breeze blowing through her hair. Her ‘audience’, two duck hand puppets and a ‘goatbird’ on her shoulder. The latter had previously been painted into a tile painting called “Margo’s Girl”. The patchwork dress is ‘echoed’ from the painting called “Lemon”. Each patch is a painted canvas sewn together.
