#17 - Fleur de Stripes

Fleur de Stripes
8" x 8"
Oil on Canvas Board

Even with as many Fleur de Lis paintings as there are out there, it is still one of my favorite shapes/symbols. But how to make it different? Change up the background. Here is my attempt not only to paint another FdL, but to peek around the corner to more illustrative design elements. I whipped the background together first on the computer to make sure I got the stripes even, printed it out, and traced it onto the canvas. Then I added the FdL. It started out with a black and white striped edge, but that looked weird, so I painted over it.
