The Diving Lady is my first tetraptych (an arrangement of pictures in four parts)! The print shows the four modes of the animated diving lady from the Starlite Motel in Mesa. The neon sign was restored after being damaged by an October 5, 2010 storm. The photos were captured during the lighting ceremony on April 02, 2013. About 300 people attended the celebration to watch Mesa Mayor Scott Smith flip the switch. The original sign was built in 1960.
The finished piece is 45.25 x 7.5 inches. The “Diving Lady Tetrptych” will soon be hanging at the Catitude Gallery & Studio on Western Avenue in Historic Avondale. Also please mark your calendar for the Catitude Gallery Artist Reception on Saturday, September 27th at 5:30 pm to 8:00 pm. Hope to see you there!
