The Gallery Azul has an upcoming show with an artist call-out for Revolutionary Women. Due April 3rd. The show is April 7th to May 5th, 2016. Gigi and I discussed the show. I told her I was drawing a blank for a concept. Gigi suggested Rosy the Riveter. As Rosy was not a particular person, I felt I could work with this concept.
I needed a model that could pull off a 1940's look and be a pin-up for a more risque Rosy as a second set. I though of Alley Shiver immediately. She accepted.
The hardest part was the backdrop. I liked the idea of Rosy working on Skyscrapers in New York. Googling skyscraper photos, I was able to find various views of Manhattan. My favorites showed the buildings faded as if a fog was hiding most of the buildings. As I only had a few hours to paint the backdrop, this was the easiest plus it would not distract from Alley
