Anytime Geisha




I'm going to go ahead and submit this for Illustration Friday ...theme this week being "Glamour". This is about as close to the concept as I will get. Take it from the make up aspect...or from the concept of making ourselves into something else...something more exciting in order to please, and be accepted.
Take it as a painting...I really don't get the concept of Glamour too much...

(I wish I had some sort of meat. I'm very hungry...dinner time. )

The painting is based upon this .

It is titled: "anytime geisha". And it is acrylic on canvas.

This is a great illo, the colours and the face painting remind of those Japanese women, geishas. Well done.
