I had a lot of fun inventing fake magazines for this painting. She's looking for something in these pages, but we're not quite sure she'll find it. She's alone in this painting, and yet totally surrounded. I think that's how most of us feel - humans and content everywhere, real connections not so much.
I mean also though she was just a delight to paint. I painted it during a residency at nvrlnd studios, and the woman in the studio beside mine came in every day like "wait, you're STILL working on it!?" There are so many layers of paint, so much silly perfectionism in this painting.
She's a big girl, painted on 30"x40" gallery wrapped canvas. It sticks out 1.5" from the wall and is finished around the edges with a wire on the back, so it doesn't need a frame. You can still bring it to any custom frame shop get a nice floating frame if you like.
If you're in the Calgary area, I will deliver her to you and send you a refund for the shipping cost. I might be able to swing delivery to Edmonton too. Otherwise I'll ship her safely in a fortress of cardboard and bubble wrap.
