So...after stating that I've decided not to work in series, it seems that these 'fashion plates' paintings have got me very excited to think about painting another series. We spent a lovely weekend with my eldest daughter and her extended family in Lethbridge for Thanksgiving and, as the weather has turned, it's been wonderful to spend time in my studio again. I keep thinking I'll go back into the first one I painted but I think, just like the 52 WEEKS::Heroes paintings which focused on portraits, the first few weeks of the series takes a bit of adjustment and a period of a testing of the waters until I'm happy and comfortable with the process and the end result. I'm thrilled because I finally feel like I have a direction again. I'm going to try to work slowly and not rush this process but I am happy. And it's lovely as these are based on the photos I have been taking of my daughter's fashion designs. Not only is she a talented tailor/designer, but a wonderful model. too. If you'd like to see her work, visit her at The Modiste.
