Wow a big catch up – while looking through my website links I clicked on ‘News and Blog’ – you’ll find it above on the right… July 2017 it said! Ok, so a lot has happened since then and here I am going to endeavour to say it all in a nutshell.
Last year was the last time you’d see Larryware at craft fairs – so much work usually and although good, not really worth it… Since I gave them up I have felt so free and free to do whatever work my heart so desires! Although at the moment, I am a little worried…
You see I have always been unique and have always received the line ‘I’ve never seen anything like this before’ – but as I fly close to what everyone else seems to be doing right now – whales, hares and foxes – it now looks like my work isn’t as originally thought up as it once was!
So yesterday – taking a well loved and known bird – I strove forth and created this:
Using my own unique style – although it’s an idea I’m sure you all well recognise, painting a beautiful scene in an outline – I have seen this with faces, whales (!) and other animals – but I’ve only ever seen a blank background, not another pattern as well – so this is what I’m going to explore!
This actually started around Christmas time – painting a scene within a scene…
Suddenly heavily inspired by the amazing film ‘Loving Vincent‘ I think Vincent has always been in me somewhere, my love of bright and intense colour, this is my Dutchness coming out… (my mum was Dutch and so was Vincent! I know, I know… But it’s a nice thought!)
So with this style I shall allow myself to be the same with hares, whales and foxes, but differently expressed then I have been, if you know what I mean – although between you and me I am at the moment preparing to paint my first ever manta ray….!
Keep checking out my website shop – I try and update it with something new every other day… And as for Etsy, I’ll keep it up, and there are some beautiful things listed for sale right now, but I think I need to really concentrate on my website for the time being!
Thanks for reading and see you all soon – definitely a lot sooner then July 2018! x
