So I have been working non stop on the artwork you see above, it is my submission for the open Cairns Regional Gallery exhibition, which I shall submit tomorrow. I'm not really sure where it came from, I haven't really done anything like it before, but in hindsight it makes a lot of sense, it is a way for me to mix my love of crochet with portraiture painting/drawing. The concept was inspired by the 'drunken monkey' as Buddhists use as a metaphor for the mind. Hundreds of thoughts enter my mind within a minute I feel sometimes, and it probably isn't that good for me. Having said that, as I often think about, often the thought of something is the most exciting part, anticipating a great event. This is where this girl is at, it is her aura if you like. Wish me luck in getting this piece picked xx.
