Back to the old days again! This is a watercolour completed in November or December 2010. I’m not sure then as I wasn’t signing my stuff and certainly wasn’t dating it! This piece grew out of one of my early art lessons! My art teacher, Jean Rooney, had asked me to comb through magazines and choose any and all images I liked without judging them or planning in any way at all. “Choose things that you enjoy looking at” and “it can be anything at all”, I can hear her saying it now! So off I went to do it. Once I had gathered up my images, just as I had with my ‘pink haired lady of the chairs’ posted just a few weeks ago, I started to put them together on the page. The lady came from an advert for an art gallery (Jean told me she liked my version better!). The rest of the images came from a home decor magazine. I really need to do this again as I loved the process of creativity involved. I can really see just how important that process is. Oh, and by the way, I still have most of my original images on poster board in my art studio. I think I’ll pull them back out and place them where I can see and absorb them again. Enjoy the process and keep making art!
