Help Me Rhonda
My friend and partner-in-fashion, Dee, and I, recently enjoyed a sunny Saturday in Del Ray to absorb the creative vibe that was shimmering off the streets & sidewalks of the annual “Art on the Avenue” festival. As we strolled & visited booth after booth of creative talent, we stopped in our tracks at one owned by artist Rhonda Corley – hanging there was the prettiest painting of a gorgeous pink fluffy frock, entitled Big Poofy Dress:
Well, Rhonda you caught our eye, and we can give you lotsa reasons why… For starters, you capture the essence of dressing up and the simple & chic femininity of a girl in a dress. And your subjects? What’s not to love? Girls in beautiful frocks, both alone and with their girlfriends, bejeweled purses and shoes, hearts and flowers – all in vibrant hues and beautiful color combinations.
I felt dizzy as I stood there admiring all the paintings trying to decide which ones I wanted – no, needed. I knew I had to have a version of Big Poofy Dress. I also chose an exquisite design of a multicolored floor-sweeping gown with azure-blue background called “Follow Your Dream”. Looks like life is clearly imitating art for the talented Ms. Corley.
Now we just can’t get Rhonda out of our heart…not that we want to.
