Dear Chicago House,
I have lived in you for 18 months and you’d think that would have given me plenty of time to sort out cupboards that got randomly “populated” on “moving in” day. But no, I was so impatient to get rid of the moving boxes that I emptied everything as fast as I could and lots of things get shoved into closets. I am human and there are a few areas that still need some work!
So today while looking for something “lost” I came across a roll of long forgotten paintings.
I painted these during my spiral era ( ha ha how arty farty!) while I was living just outside Brussels in Belgium, many, many moons ago. I seem to remember being very inspired by the plentiful wrought iron scroll work I saw on my trips into the city to meet with my French tutor (who liked to share with me the details of her sex life…in French of course!)
We were renting a very vanilla villa at the time and hence my need for color (or to use the correct English spelling colour)
They are painted in acrylic but on junky moving packing paper. Come to think of it I still have a thing for spirals with a Pinterest board dedicated to them.
Have you found anything interesting in your closets?
