OOAK Penelope Brown

Slowly I am getting back to 'normal'.  It's amazing how much a 4 very long day show can take out of a person.  I don't normally talk to hundreds of people each day. So I found myself wanting to crawl a little back into a shell for the past few days while recovering from what was an amazing show for me.

Anyways, I wanted to get back to blogging a bit with some of the lovely stuff that was at the OOAK show, some of which I bought, some I didn't, but the first was a silkscreen painting by Penelope Brown.  I love the process she goes through to get these paintings.  It's so great to see the layering of colours and how they overlap and become other colours.  Very fun, bright and cheery, I fell in love with her Parakeets right at the get go.  So it has come home with me and looks like it fits right in above my mantle with my collection of tiles (Xenia Thaler, Jasna Sokolovic, vintage tiles from Spain... you get the idea).  Here's a little video of her process that was on her website- so great to see how many different screens she is using just for one image!
