The third in my Wine and Song Series. Days of Wine and Roses holds lots of little memorable snippets for me. In my late teens and early twenties I played the Trumpet, had a Cabaret act and this song was one of those I played often. I had a couple starts at creating this work but the painting did not come together as I do not do much planning but build it bit by bit so I washed everything off , covered it with watercolour ground and started again. So pleased I could as this was on a Clayboard Cradled panel and they are not cheap. It includes some of the tissue paper I printed whilst I was waiting for my brick wall episode to end and a piece of database from a sheet music catalog I had compiled whilst working in my retail music business up until 2008. Painting for a series and coming up with a unique work for each one is quite challenging but I love getting lost in the process.
I have also spent some time this week uploading some of my paintings to Redbubble who offer different types of prints on paper and canvas and greeting cards as I know not everyone is in a position to or wants to buy an Original art work. Redbubble prices are most affordable. I believe they print in lots of countries around the world so delivery is cost effective. i.e if you order in Australia delivery comes from Australia. If a work of mine is not included but you would like a print just contact me and I will see if it can be added.
