I was going to frame this picture but then thought it would save the buyer money on shipping. This is a fairy with butterfly wings bearing a gift package. On the far lower left corner is a light yellow color. It almost looks like paint but I am not sure. When matted and framed it shouldn’t show. This painting measures 12-1/4 inches tall and 9-1/4 inches wide. No frame. Joanne had different styles. Usually her subjects were always women and girls. Some were realistic while others were cartoon. She created the daily comic strip 'Antoinette & Cleopatra' under the name Joanne McGuire which was supposedly syndicated by Copley from 1978-80. The Comic Strip Project has this on her: Battiste, Joanne (McGuire) St. Univ. Colorado, Art Inst. Chicago, CS 'Antoinette and Cleopatra' ‘78-’80 painter 85. Also here is her biography from, THE PUEBLO CHIEFTAIN MAY 19, 2009 written by Jeff Tucker. Artist and former Puebloan Joanne Battiste died Friday in Colorado Springs where she made her home. She was 76. Ms. Battiste was best known for her whimsical paintings of women. Her work was shown at a number of area galleries, including at the Sangre de Cristo Arts and Conference Center in Pueblo, The Denver Art Museum and Rich Designs Gallery in Colorado Springs. Battiste was also the author and creator of "Antoinette and Cleopatra," a syndicated newspaper comic strip in the 1970s. Battiste was a Pueblo native and the first wife of Dr. Aldo Anthony Battiste. Before her art career, Battiste worked for the Pueblo County Department of Social Services.
