Blues

Blues
15 cm x 10 cm. 6 in x 4 in.
Watercolour

“This is a papier-mâché bowl that I made sixteen years ago. The night that I was putting on the blues I found that water splashed onto the dry paint then sponged off made great patterns. So I sneaked into the kid’s rooms and while they were sleeping, I put their little baby hands onto the bowl and dabbed away with the sponge and the paint. They woke up the next day with strange blue-hand-itus but that washed off. I, on the other hand, have a bowl that, sixteen years later I can use to evoke the blues just by looking at those tiny handprints. It does no harm, every once in a while to enjoy a little reflection.”

This is also available as a giclee print in a strictly limited edition of 25
