“Lipstick” Colored Pencil on Stonehenge Paper 15×11″ framed to 23×20″
“Lipstick” is about beauty. I always have felt like putting makeup on what I’ve got just looks like makeup on what I’ve got. It doesn’t improve anyone’s chances of being mistaken for a supermodel. Does it help this little toad? I’ll let the viewer decide.
I am proud and honored to say that this piece was juried into the Minnesota State Fair’s Fine Art Show in 2011. Prints are available at my Etsy Shop! The framed original is sold.
The toad model I used for this piece was very cooperative and looked in the mirror for a good amount of time. No actual lipstick was applied to the toad. Heck, if I don’t like to wear it, why should he have to?
