GLAMOROUS WOMEN IN FABULOUS PLACES ARTIST TRISH BIDDLE ADDS THE DEL MAR THOROUGHBRED CLUB TO HER IMPRESSIVE RESUME
SAN DIEGO – Glamorous Women in Fabulous Places artist Trish Biddle, has created the image for the official 2009 Del Mar Thoroughbred Club racing season. She will be there for opening day in July to unveil the painting and kick of the season with her classic retro vintage style, with Hollywood looking on. This follows on the heels of another equestrian venue, the Kentucky derby, where Trish was the official artist in 2008.
The Del Mar painting features bright colors and Trish's penchant for glamorous women in fabulous places. The track, which opened in 1937, is rich with history--home of the famous Seabiscuit-Ligaroti race, and playground for old-Hollywood's elite--and scenic beauty. The classic, Spanish-style architecture is surrounded by well-manicured lawns and vibrant flowers. Trish's art will be on the cover of the programs, tickets and complete line of merchandise.
Ms. Biddle (www.trishbiddle.com) is published internationally, and collectors around the world appreciate her expertise in capturing nature and light to create richly-colored, vintage-inspired art. The Art Deco Period is a favorite source of inspiration for her, as she incorporates the fashion, sophistication and simplicity of that era into her paintings. Born in Minneapolis and now living in Westlake, Texas, she studied at the Dallas Institute of Art before beginning her career as an illustrator and textile designer. Her process of drawing, painting and designing eventually melded onto canvases, creating romantic, elegant images.
Ms. Biddle was commissioned to create the coveted "Art of the Kentucky Derby" posters series for 2008 (www.derbyartgifts.com). Her stylized version of America's greatest horse race was highly-regarded, and surpassed all previous retail sales marks for a Derby poster. She was also commissioned to create the official art for the 2009 Westminster Dog Show, “Westminster. There’s only one” in 2009.
Del Mar opens it season the end of July 2009.
