That dress


Kate's dress today was one thing, but those trees in the abby with superb lighting and flowers were for me just fabulous.
Seeing all those dresses today reminded me of my work that flowed from a friends wedding (dress). I borrowed it after the wedding and painted it quite a few times, always trying to the way the form was 'contained' by the fabric which gave it a sort of weightlessness.
It featured on the exhibition invite back in those early days and I had it printed on the thinest paper thay could work on, a rather brittle bank-note sort of paper with monochromatic sepia ink. Happy days.
