For 2021, my only business resolution was to create a monthly folly. So many balls have been up in the air since we relocated to Spain, and for the new year it was important to me to not put an incredible amount of pressure on the business. 2021 is for play, discovery, and for wandering creatively. The definition of Folly is 'a lack of good sense; foolishness' and these monthly creations have been just that: fun whimsies.
Summer is for Hand Painted Wicker. When I saw this little wicker bag while perusing Parfois, I knew it would be a fun piece to paint for my monthly 'artist folly' series. Shortly thereafter, we visited beautiful El Escourial, the vacation home of the Spanish king, just outside of Madrid. The blush pink China Roses were in bloom and made a stunning backdrop against the bag. I hope to work with more brands and develop artist collaborations with them. In the meantime, this is a great way to envision my work on wearable things like bags.
