Introducing "Bootstrap Betsy" and VAMPIRE CONTEST
Introducing my newest girl in my Pirates series - "Bootstrap Betsy!" I love her colourful parrot friend bringing her strands of pearls! Actually, I love everything in this painting, from her classic tattoos - to the blue land crab approaching the half-buried skeleton - to the tropical sea - the palm trees reflecting in her eyes - the distant ship on the horizon - pretty cool! My own original acrylic painting.
This is the full sized original 16"x12" acrylic painting on 2" deep craded masonite, ready to HANG! Bidding starts at just one penny and it is up for a 10-day auction ending the evening of Wednesday, February 8th at 8:46 PM Central Time and you can see her below (be sure to look at all the closeup details - lots going on in this one!
