Most of the time, I just have to have lots of colour around me, a white base with a mix of bright and faded colours (hmmm... except terracotta and lilac, not my cup of tea!). And then once in a while, I get in an all white and natural mood. That's why I love this shop Baileys so much. Although I couldn't live in a 'Baileys' ' type house because colour would creep in eventually, it really appeals.
I was in this kind of mood when I got working on this canvas.
Although, you see what I mean about colour creeping back in :)
Devon, where I live, is full of these cute valleys with perfectly round hills. This is exactly the kind of spot I dream of for my gypsy caravan, in a meadow overlooking the hills. Sigh...
The design for the caravan (or 'roulotte', it sounds even better in French), came about after my friend Alex suggested I make some hoops to display in his yurts and (soon to be) gypsy caravans. A match made in heaven I say, since I am already slightly obsessed with all things gypsy, it's right up my street!
This is all quite exciting for me, because lately I have been thinking, maybe, it's time I found places to sell my work. I am quite indecisive on the subject, probably over protective, but Alex's yurts and caravans (Wild in Style) are just the perfect place for my little hoops.
