The Invisible Nature Of Tansy Fairchild, oil on canvas, 14″x18″. Sold.
I had the name of this painting in mind long before I figured out what to do with it. Then, one day as I was looking through some chinoiserie wallpaper patterns, the painting came to me- complete- including the bird on the string. I almost changed it to a turtle on a string but stopped myself as that made absolutely no sense.
Gypsy And The Tassel, 18″x24″, oil on canvas. Sold.
Poor Gypsy, I think she will forever be tormented by the lantern tassel. The other day it occurred to me that animals might be optimists. Every morning Finnegan waits by John’s side and watches him eat his breakfast. Every morning he anticipates John’s toast flying out of his hand and directly into his mouth. This of course never happens, but Finnegan still sits patiently waiting for the day that this event will take place. Maybe it’s because he’s not very smart, but I think it’s because he’s optimistic.
