I read that phrase somewhere is scrap-land and it immediately spoke to me.
I knew I had to do something with this so I sat in my scrap space (aka my hole in the wall aka basement) and sat and sat thinking about how I should start this.
Then some fabric I've been hoarding by Anna Maria Horner caught my eye. Which, inadvertantly was sitting next to some stretched canvases I've also been hoarding (and meaning to use for a long while now). So, I pulled both the fabric and the canvas out of my stash and thought why not use this, I could collage it, put it on canvas, use my paints and then I just got started, on auto-pilot, just doing what felt right, and not too much thinking once I got started.
I wanted something bold, bright, colourful, something that made a statment and was fitting for, 'LIVE OUT LOUD'. I decided this is going to hang somewhere in my scrap space (aka my hole in the wall, basement - smile!), to cheer things up and at the same time inspire me with all it's bright cheerfulness, against the dull-ery of my 'hole in the wall'. Laugh.
