Love Me, Leave Me

So happy to be a part of this lovely exhibition which should be amazing, I dont know all the ladies here but the ones I do know are some of the most talented artists I have met :)
The show is curated by the delightful Fruzsi Kenez so it should be an amazing night and I have 3 small works in for sale, watercolours and oil paint, so whip out your purses and give me your pennies! Tehe!

These are a few of my small watercolours I've done this year.
Compared to my oil paintings they have a more quiet, intimate quality which I really like.They operate in a different way; whereas the paintings are perhaps more immediate, these have a subtle presence which makes you come closer yet might push you away at the same time. I think this quietness can make them look 'pretty' or something (watercolours by their very nature have a really pretty quality I believe anyways) and I like to undermine this with my subject matter which is often dead animals, disembodied heads and skulls.
