I rather like this quote by Degas. As someone who’s always loved the works of Kandinsky, Dali, Picasso, Magritte (to name just a few) I’ve always found it fascinating what I see in their art – sometimes what I see isn’t what the ‘experts’ say is what I should and other times I totally ‘get’ it…the wonder of art is indeed that it means something different to every person.
This week I finished a trio of paintings I’ve made for my niece as a little Christmas surprise pressie. I wanted to create something a bit different and have tried to produce pieces to suit every mood that a young lady heading into her teens may have…
- The gilt antique with golden heart…for that glamorous ‘I feel the need to be surrounded by luxury and pampered’ mood.
- The 60/70s psychedelic flower power style for when she’s feeling on top of the world and full of smiles.
- The simple silver flutterbye in the summer sky…for those moments when she needs calmness and serenity to see her through.
