I’m so excited. I’ve actually got my art done for the upcoming Athy Art Group exhibition ahead of time! Well, what I really mean is that it’s not the night before (or morning of) the pieces are due to be hung.
Thankfully I have a great framer who doesn’t need a huge amount of time to frame them. I always leave this stuff to the last minute and she does a brilliant job in the absolute minimum of time. For this I am eternally grateful.
I decided to do a combination of a hand-painted background colour wash with a screen printed design on top. I like the juxtaposition of rough, hand-done paint with sharp symmetrical designs. I did between three and four variation for each of the four designs. The photo above is showing the final four that I think I’ll be entering into the exhibition. I’ll make the final decision tonight before I drop them off to the framer.
