Deltas Complete!

I have finished my first Delta artwork.  I rather like the way it turned out overall.  It is just 12" X 12".

"Delta Divas"

Painting's all done!

I have finished the painting step.  I decided to change some of the colors of things for more interest and variety in the characters.  I am often asked why no faces?  I don't know...When I did the initial sketch they had faces, but I think I like for the characters in my artworks to be anyone who views it rather than a particular person.  Yes, I am capable of doing faces, but I guess this is my signature. 

Now I need to quilt it.

New work in progress

I am a member of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc.  However, I have been wanting to do some artworks based on historically African-American sororities in general.  I have already completed a few based on my sorority, and plan to make more.  However, I came across a picture of an aquaintance who is a member of Delta Sigma Theta, and asked if I could use it for an artwork.  I have had this picture for about a year.  I decided that it would be the subject for an artwork for an upcoming show in Atlanta:  The Square Foot Pin-Up Art Show.

Here is the first step:

Now for the paint!
