Serpent Girl by hank1 Serpent Girl by hank1
Oils on canvas
11 x 14"
1985

The model put on some "Spock ears" just for fun. I started to actually paint her with those ears, but couldn't bring myself to make that joke. Not all the way, although I did give her the look of a "devil girl". Painted her eyes red, and emphasized other things in the picture to indicate a playfully wicked-like aspect.

No one has seen the serpent in the fold on the left. So I direct your attention to it. Thank you.

Sorry I cannot rid the photo of the painting of the texture of the canvas that you see in the background.

Did not hamper the beauty one bit, I was just trying to decide if it was actually that way or just from the photo!

IS THAT HER REAL EAR??  HER HAIR HAS A LOT OF RED IN IT.  LOVE THE SHADOW AND MUTED COLOR OF THIS ONE.

Not her real ear. No, she actually had on a fake ear as one used to see in those days. A "Mr. Spock" ear if you will. I held myself back a little from painting that.

She might be, miss Jasmin. She's now nearing age 45.
