For this show I decided to change the title of the painting to "Use it or Lose It". The meaning of the painting stays the same, but it just didn't seem to make sense to keep it titled Elizabeth and Susan when it is out of context. (Meaning not in the group of paintings I made for the Venus Envy Exhibit.) The painting serves as a wake up call for everyone in this country to be more pro-active and use our right to vote, or we might just lose that right.
If you are interested in seeing it and some other great works of art please go down to the new Art St. Louis Gallery on Washington Avenue this weekend. The opening reception is this Saturday, August 9 from 6-8 PM. Unfortunately, I wont get to go because I will be in Batavia, IL this weekend for Art in Your Eye. I will post more about that tomorrow if I get a chance.
