A little backstory, because we all like that, right? Smiley I moved into a new place back in November, and decided to paint my bathroom lavender and go with a purple/white/turquoise theme. Then, while idly browsing the internet, I saw this cover for the upcoming season 6 DVD of Futurama, and the colors were just perfect for my bathroom! So, I had to paint it.

She is done in oil on canvas, 24"x30". It took me several months to finish because I worked on it only very sparingly. I sketched out the image from the DVD freehand, then traced my sketch onto transparent acetate and used an overhead projector to then trace the image onto the canvas for painting. I am so pleased with her! She just needs a nice white frame and then she'll be hanging up in her intended home in no time!

Thanks for peeking!
