I'm very excited to have completed another body of work and to begin preparing for another upcoming series. Besides being rather long, I enjoyed my previous 100 Day Project (Nasty Women) so much last year that I have decided to create another project, though reduced to 30 days. I think this one may be a little easier on me...we'll see.
wunderland (German): won·der·land | \ ˈwən-dər-ˌland , -lənd\
1 : an imaginary place of delicate beauty or magical charm
2 : a place that excites admiration or wonder; a scenic wonderland
As long as I can remember I have been drawn to interesting, independent female characters in film. I love movies and television, and the quirkier the character and the storyline, the better. There is something so special about stepping away from reality for a little while and being lost in a visual wonderland.
In this series of 30 portraits painted over 30 days my focus is on the unapologetic females that help me to appreciate the unique qualities that make me who I am. There were so many to choose from but I have decided to narrow it down to these thirty as there was just something special about the storyline or the roles that drew my attention.
I have specifically chosen 30 days in June to celebrate the end of a previous body of work, the beginning of summer, and the month of my birth.
If you want to follow along, I will be posting it here, online in my portfolio and on Instagram/veronicafunk/
