“Wink” (2012)

… Yes I know, and my excuse is that between my husband and I – we have managed to lose the cameras battery charger.

Had to use the camera at work to snap this up, before it makes it’s way to the auctioneers – it will be put up for auction in aid of raising funds for cancer, through the CANSA organisation in South Africa.

I am not entirely sure why the idea of painting old cars has such a firm grasp on me at the moment, but once I was done with it …the clean lines, the vibrant colours and style of painting made it clear. It was such a pleasure for a change, to paint something that didn’t have excessive or large areas requiring precise shading & blending and I also managed to incorporate the use of watercolour into the background (I haven’t used watercolours in ages…).

It’s also the ‘fastest’ painting I’ve done in about 12 years… and probably the first time I have ever used yellow in my main subject. I still don’t like yellow and will veer away from it in future, because the paint seems far too transparent and doesn’t mix well with others (much like an anti-social person).

About The Crazy Lady

After travelling the world, studying something I love and becoming a mother - I felt the need to talk and write...now that I've chased everyone away with my incessant yapping, but still with this burning desire for attention... my mother suggested I blog. (That way people could choose if they wanted to listen or not...) I also decided after much deliberation, that 2011 was the year that I would 'tie the knot'... that it was finally time, after having put it off for so very long. I do not however believe that regardless of the wedding preparations or level of organisation, one could not possibly prepare me for this strange journey I seem to have undertaken. So I'm a little crazier than usual :)
