Vintage Dress Form Painting…

Spring Greetings!

I’ve been away from blogging for a couple of months due to family matters.  In March, my dad fell and injured his neck and has temporary paralysis, so I have been making a few trips back and forth to Oregon to visit and help out during his recovery. I must say…. it is FREEZING cold in that neck of the woods.  I am back home this week in sunny California and enjoying our 80 degree weather.  Everything is blooming and inspiring me to paint.

One good thing about not blogging for a while, is that I have lots of artwork to share.  While sitting with my dad, I had lots of time to sketch and in between trips, I’ve created a few paintings in the studio.  And my stress release habit of creating jewelry… well, let’s just say, I have quite a few new pieces I need to photograph and load to my online store. 🙂

I just looked thru my posts and noticed I haven’t shared this sweet little 8″ x 10″ painting that I made in February.

Romantic Vintage Fairy Dress Painting by Janell Mithani

It most certainly embraces my absolute love and fascination for everything vintage! And yes, I added wings! 🙂  I’ve collected and worn vintage dresses and jewelry since I was a teen, and love to use old dress forms to display my jewelry.

I hope you are doing well and I look forward to catching up on everyone’s blog posts.

I wish you a wonderful, creative, day, Janell

  1. A sweet painting Janell – love the palette used for the girly-girl feel. I’m sorry to read about your Father’s back injury, he’s lucky that you were able to travel and be with him during his recovery period. I’m looking forward to seeing all you new art and it’s great to see you again!

  2. Hi Jill, thanks for your thoughts about my dad. Yes, it is hard to watch parents age, as well as friends and other family. I seem to be at that point in my life these days. I hope you are doing well and finding time to write. I see I missed your new book being published. So happy for you!

  3. Hi Mary, thank you. I had a lot of fun with this painting and have more sketches to paint, too. It’s the fun art therapy that I need right now. My dad is recovering and doing more each day. I brought him his fishing pole for PT, so he is pretty determined as fishing season is his favorite time of year. 🙂 I am off to see what you have been up to, knowing you, I’ve missed a lot of beautiful art.

  5. I’m so sorry to hear about your father’s injury. I hope he continues to recover well. He’s blessed to have you as a daughter! I’m glad you’ve been able to have your art for an outlet–and I hope your dad will soon be “in the pink,” too! 🙂
