The fine people of Daisy Cheynes are hosting “Hello Neighbour” from now until the end of August. Here she is, perched happily in the window, shyly asking people to step closer and have a look. A lot of work went into this and I’m happy with the result.
Daisy Cheynes have always been good to me, ever since I started working with them that one fateful day four years ago when I introduced myself to the fabulous shop owner. Without shops like DC and Curiouser, I just would not have the opportunity to create and share the art I love to make.
“Hello Neighbour” had her first stop at Curiouser in Bruntsfield. As this is my ‘hood, I had the opportunity to see people look at the work. It’s a wonderful thing to see people enjoy the work of your hands. (Well, I’m assuming there was some sort of enjoyment there. I didn’t see anyone shake their fists in anger or shout that they wish they could unsee what they just saw).
The project will continue to make its rounds all the way until December. To think this all began with me just wanting to practice my watercolour painting…
