An Idea is Like A Storm, at Mitzi's Sister

An Idea Is Like A Storm I & II
acrylic on canvas, framed
$180.OO each / $320.OO pair
I don't give up on an idea until I figure out why I painted it, so after painting the large piece for the Fringe Festival and being asked numerous times why I chose to paint the women with the books, so I decided to work on a couple in the studio, once I got the title I understood why I did it. I've been looking for new ideas, inspiration etc. and not finding anything, so instead of looking around I went looking in books. So the books are a gateway to new ideas, and it all made sense.
The work has been hung at Mitzi's Sister and looks great, the staff likes it and I've received several compliments, I don't think I'll post and pictures of the way the show is hung, it's all spaced so far apart that you don't get a sense of the paintings in the space, so just head to Mitzi's Sister to check it out, Queen West, west of Lansdowne between Fuller and Sorauren on the north side of the street. Mondays half price nachos and on Wednesday kids eat free (but only if they squeal and scream) . They open at 6 pm. I'll be there Mondays from 6-8 pm if you want to meet, see the work etc.
