My original painting, "A Marvelous Time" by Mary LaGarde, is oil on canvas, 60 x 48 inches. This is a beautiful signed and limited edition giclee on archival watercolor paper. It is 20 x 16 inches with a two inch border. My original painting was inspired by Taylor Swift's song "The Last Great American Dynasty". Her song tells the tale of Rebekah Harkness, the wealthy widow who hosted lavish and sometimes outrageous parties at her "Holiday House" mansion in Watch Hill, Rhode Island. That mansion now belongs to Taylor Swift. My goal was to capture the spirit and images of long-gone artists, choreographers, and dancers who participated in Rebekah's parties, including Salvador Dali, Andy Warhol, Jerome Robbins, Jose Greco and Alvin Ailey, Jr. For a discussion of the link between Swift's lyrics and the characters and symbolism in my painting, see my blog (link in bio).
