Homage to Lenore Kight Wingard
Wow! This was F U N. So that is Lenore Kight Wingard (1911-2000). Known as "America's Premiere Mermaid", Lenore won medals in the 1932 and 1936 Olympics. I cut her out of a 1937 advertisement for Camel cigarettes! The bear is from a National Geographic book about wildlife. Those are paper roses purchased at a craft shop. The piece measures 12 x 12 inches and I have already framed it in a ready-made shadow box frame. (Which I just added to this post!)
