Adrienne Mondrian

I've been painting a lot of women lately. I should be painting my house.

I had the idea of taking the simple geometric shapes of Piet Mondrian's work and applying it to the curves of a woman, and was lucky when Addy agreed to be the canvas. Even luckier, my friend and model Kaitlin agreed to come over and paint Addy.

The process took about 2 hours to complete, from head to foot, using washable paints from the kids' craft section of Walmart. Keeping my Flickr safe for all viewers, you can't see the amazing job Kait did here, but you can appreciate the otherworldly look that Addy brought to it. If only every photoshoot was this creative and fulfilling!
