You know originally this exhibition was going to be a landscape exhibition. For 6 months I worked with the idea of painting a room full of landscapes. And when it came time to sit down and paint the work, when there was no more time for thinking, I couldn't do it. My heart wasn't in it. It was my first big lesson in letting go this year and it was a huge one.
So I went back to painting what I know and what I love.
We're All Tall Poppies
Acrylic, spray paint and collage on canvas
20 x 24 inch
And then I found the dress.
A dress that looks like one of my paintings.
A dress that I loved from the minute I laid eyes on it.
The most beautiful dress in the world.
And to top it all off I thought I'd get toes to match.
If you're free on Friday night please join me to celebrate the opening of my first solo gallery exhibition at Red Brick from 6pm. I'll be the one in the gorgeous dress.
