The title of this painting was suggested by an instagram follower: a nod to the obvious subject, of course, but also Dolly Parton's philanthropic work in literacy.
16 x 16 x 1.5"
The acrylic painting is done on cradled birch panel with raw wood edges and varnished with a semi-gloss UV protectant coating to resist fading over time.
"Dolly, a Literal Queen" is part of a series of pop-culture-inspired acrylics in vibrant colours that brought as much joy to paint as they hopefully will bring to collectors who choose to hang them. I love creating that feeling of surprise, a laugh, or smile, in the viewer, by presenting a familiar subject in an unfamiliar or unexpected way.
Works are carefully packaged for shipping in reused packaging materials to reduce the environmental footprint associated with getting my work safely to buyers. You may see the occasional cereal box logo in the packaging of your purchases from my shop, but you can feel good about knowing that waste is minimized in this way.
