“The Pink Panda” 6” x 6” by Sandra Fremgen
Panda and the Girl are hanging out in Palm Springs! It's a sunny afternoon and they are driving down the desert road heading towards their next mission.
The Back Story:
I was inspired to create this painting after my husband and I went to Palm Springs. Every time we visit Tom's family in Palm Springs, I always appreciate how open the land is. There are no sky scrappers, excessive billboard signs or tacky strip malls that block your view of the desert and its mountains. Many of the buildings, especially the ones in downtown Palm Springs, still have their 1950's charm. In the middle of downtown Palm Springs is a giant sculpture of Marilyn Manroe posing in her signature blowing white dress. At night, the stars are always out and the air is so clean. For us ladies, it is easy to spend a day in Palm Springs with a beautiful headscarf and glamorous sunglasses.
The color palette of bright pink, silver, yellow orche, turquoise and gray is mid century modern. The silver geometric pattern in the background is atomic space age. Panda is wearing a 1950's cardigan. The Girl's outfit is a mix of 1950's and throwback fashions I have seen on the fashion runway.
