Contemporary abstract painting that was included in an exhibition that celebrates women. This work inspired by the childhood desire to be grown that materializes in the occupation of dress-ups explores the memories of such delightful masquerades. Framed in Tasmanian Oak box frame, dimensions inclusive of frame.

Made with love

Professional quality acrylic paints on either a 10 or 12oz canvas.  I like to stretch the canvases myself, select the materials, the wood and canvas and assemble the frames in my studio. Frames are either hardwood or pine,  professional stretchers that are stretched with either 100% cotton or a cotton-polyester blend. I like the smooth fine weave of the polycotton. 

Handling the materials at this early stage provides my initial connection with the work, a familiarity with the wood and the surface of the weave and marks the beginning of a journey.
