this was an image i had tumbling around in my head for a while, after seeing this scene in a dream over a year ago. finally all sorts of things aligned (the image, starting to paint, hearing about the upcoming cute show) and it's come together as a painting! this is the largest one i've made yet, it's something like 14 x 18 and i'm having a hard time finding a box to mail it to the gallery...
oh yeah! it'll be on display at ellO gallery in portsmouth, new hampshire, as part of their "cute show" (not the death and destruction one, hahaha, that's another painting waiting to happen... revenge of the guinea-corn, perhaps?) during the month of february.

a new painting i made for a show at the washington street arts center in somerville. it was a short show, but a great combination of ideas, styles, and techniques.
amelia is painted in acrylics atop a layer of decoupaged book pages, all on canvas.
eta: megan let me know about this cool time lapse video of the exhibit...
