Good Luck with That
oil on panel, 12x12"
These sweet cabochons, that I used as a fun little still life, came all the way from Singapore. I'm fascinated recently with the display of charms like these as over-the-top adornments, bedazzling cell phones, jewelry and other handheld items for young ladies across cultures. The advertiser's use of faux decadence and girlish spectacles attract attention from women. This calls to question who's marketing to this audience of consumers, and what they have to gain.
With the panda as a good luck symbol, this painting must be extra lucky, as there are seven!
