Making 50 of them
When I took my first painting class in college my professor told me that when there was a piece that I liked I needed to make 5o of them so I could really understand what I was doing.
When I was in college I didn’t quite get the wisdom of that statement. I am working on an invitation design.
My clients are people of real taste and definite opinions. I love working with them. It also helps that they are really delightful.
So over the past few weeks I have been creating LOTS of variations on the theme.
I really do enjoy the back and forth as each of us clarifies what we like or don’t like. I love the partnership of working with clients.
What I think is the final version is drying on my dining room table.
Waiting for some of the elements to dry I made this.
A half slip. This reminds me of the vibrant half slips that I lusted after in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s. It’s a bit of fabric left over from a dress from a few years ago. The slip goes perfectly with the apple green double-knit dress that also looks like it might have come from the same moment in sartorial history, A bright slip in a retro print never fails to make me happy. I have a low threshold for joy.
