Spring is in the air in Los Angeles.  It’s so refreshing to see pastels popping up in fashion and on spring flowers outside.  Likewise, spring was my muse for today’s gown and I had so much fun painting it.  I love to wear bright pinks and gowns that have a lot of volume so I found myself channeling a dress I wish I owned with this painting.  I could see the black portions of the gown being made out of lace.  The main pink fabric would be made out of a light, comfortable material, and it would be lined with crinoline to add that extra poof.
