Sadly, I don’t wear hats very often. If you looked in my closet, you’d see that I don’t own very many – just a winter hat, a baseball cap, and a sun hat from several years ago. I appreciate their practical purposes, but it is difficult to find adult hats that fit my small head! However, even though I don’t wear them, I do love the idea of hats and other head-related accessories. They can be such fun statement pieces!
This love affair with hats has become very apparent in my artwork over the past year. I was going through my work recently and discovered that at least half of my fashion pieces feature some kind of headdress. I’ve painted a derby hat, the ever-classic fedora, a headscarf, more than one sun hat, a flower crown – even a giant bow! Also, various doodles I’ve posted occasionally on Instagram.
The truth is, I wish I were a hat person. But since I’m not, I seem to enjoy depicting them in my artwork instead. Here are just a few examples from my collection. Which one do you like the best?
What about you? Are you a hat person?
