"Yellow Dress"

"Yellow Dress" by Kathryn Morris Trotter
oil on canvas

I continue to be inspired by the elegance that women exude, particularly in the generations proceeding us. Curiosity of these women is evoked as I look at old photos of how women my age used to be..for instance, my grandmother in her prime. It was the way they dressed, how they carried themselves, and the roles they were most know for that makes them so captivating.

My inspiration and background in fashion design coupled with my affinity for anything vintage allows my painting to emerge with excitement as I live vicariously through these women.
