It's very nice I love it, i like all the elements you brought into it, some of which are certainly more skilled versions of my own which is lovely to see. Very odd seeing a painting of yourself to be honest, Has a bit of a through the looking glass feel to the experience I'm only just back, but i got to take a peep at it on my phone last night, which was wonderfully timed as it came after some drunken RA heads demanded to know what part of Dún Laoghaire i used to live in and if i was protestant. so it distracted me excellently from that. that was however on a screen the size of a large postage stamp. so i didn't get to indulge in all the lovely nuances. Your mermaid is gorgeous, i hope she was fun to paint, she looks it. You did a great job turning that facinator into a hat
Thank you very much for the novel experience of seeing yourself painted, I love the depth in the shadows and will continue hypothesizing what's back there.
It must suck being a nicotine addicted mermaid, for one thing the tobacco must be a pain to find. unless she's smoking seaweed???
Thank you for being You! As an artist yourself, I didn't expect you to be overly enthused by someone (like me, especially) offering to do your painting, and you might've thought I'd do you as a rubber nun, but I just had this vision, sort of. Velvety, chair, somewhat elegant bohemian, but I couldn't try a "realistic" old school portrait, cos its' half imaginary. Anyhows, sorry to hear you got bothered by some boring drunks, still with the ole mumbo jumbo of "Billy or Dan". Hope you had a great time outside of them feckers. What was the weather like? We had some thunder and a day of tropical rain and last night was so hot, I couldn't breathe let alone sleep. How interesting, talking about the weather? I can't help it, it's me age.
I thought, if the mermaid's come up for air, she may aswell have a fag. Or she's got a box of great vintage cigars from some shipwreck. I can honestly say it was a pleasure trying to paint you, so there! Don't be getting out of bed too soon. If you have, go back, you're still on holiday. Welcome back, and hope you keep in holiday mode for as long as poss.
Ha, I would of been fine with a rubber nun, although it might have been a bit odd.
It was really nice being away, got to indulge in a lot of rockpooling. which has been a passion of mine since i was a kid. It was almost always sunny as well which is a miracle. Nah a smoking mermaid is really great, i loved it, very sexy. if and when i finish my water/metal piece it'll be a lesbian mermaid. we can join forces in taking back the mermaid genre from Disney and children everywhere can be scarred for life Sorry i did vanish there for a while. this weeks been a bit mad, and the weekend even more so.
Hahaha, You are funny, and I wouldn't think easilly shocked. Yes, I remember your passion for rock pools. Little worlds with little inhabitants. You're like a giant alien, peering over them, and occasionally interferring with them!?! But in a friendly, inquisitive way... Yes, Fukk off Corporate Disney, Let's Lez-up the mermaids, but I see you as the flag bearer there.
I hope your madnesses are happy maddnesssses or not troubling ones. I'm off and on, and finally succumbed to anti-biotics for my chest infection. I haven't had a fag in 2 days!!!!????!!!! That's fukking maddd, I reall y want one now, but I can barely breathe. Inhalers are great tho.
Happy Wednesday to you, Bohemian Girl, Lady Artist, Designer and Arbiter Elegantiarum.
