New Rosie, 12x9 Watercolor Painting, Illustration


This painting was part of a series of working people done for a pipefitters union. This one was my favorite. She reminds me of Rosie the Riveter as she does what is traditionally a man's job. I am so impressed that she makes a few fashion statements in spite of having to wear ugly overalls and those white gloves that are not going to be seen at any tea party. She has a hairdo, hair ribbon, and earrings. Rosie would be proud.

I'm racing against time this week, so I had to dig this out of my archives. This is a far cry from the sultry women I've painted recently, but I'll get back to that. I do like painting working people, who are the backbone of our country.
