I've been keeping this piece of art under wraps for a while!!
Here's the latest addition to my drinks collection, 'Speak Easy'. If you haven't already guessed, the theme is bourbon. A saucy Southern themed addition, in that there are a few cheeky bourbon brands I've made up, as well as a twist on a few you may recognise! Seemed only appropriate to make the reveal on a Friday night. It's definitely a weekend piece!
These pieces are always great fun but this one needed a touch of ambience too. The illicit speakeasy bar setting, the Southern references and the downright naughtiness. I always love to tell a story.....
I delivered this original to the Mason Laurence Gallery in Dartington, Devon, this afternoon. Here it is, still wrapped up! It's a shame you can't see the frame as it's a dark wooden distressed frame which suits this piece perfectly. My trusty framer always gets it right!!
It measures 77 x 79cm and in fact, has a double frame! The original is priced at £1200 and there will be a limited print edition coming out very soon!
The piece is not yet listed on the website but will be available very soon. Please do get in touch if you'd like to reserve one. At this stage you can pick any number from 1 - 95!
Now I've scratched this itch, I will return to creating work for my exhibition! As they say, variety is the spice of life!!
