Aube de l
Aube de l
Nothing quite like the dawn.
With its delicate touch comes a promise.
The morning dew glistening as it echoes.
Slowly the sun rises to cast away the depth of the dark night. With its retreat, the darkness takes so much with it.
I was up early this morning and watched the sun come up. I cannot remember the last time I did that. It was so quiet, so calm. So different than my beloved Chicago, where even at such an early hour there was no peace.
I have finally begun the new series of paintings for the fall shows. I am a few months behind schedule and my fall shows may very well become winter shows. Although there will be quite a few upset people if that is so. What can I say, I am an artist. Do I need to apologize? No, yet I am sure I will.
The new series is something quite different than anything I have ever done. Usually, I just paint nudes for my shows. I do alot of different stuff outside of my shows but for my shows it is almost always nudes. This time, my ladies are getting clothes, dresses actually. I am going to paint my beauty's in ball gowns, victorian style. Of course they will be provocative, sexual....as always with me. I want to mix the world of my elegant ladies of distinction with the world of my beautiful whores.....Moulin Rouge style if you will. Bring forth the promise of a lie. Betray my sweet virgins with sexual overtones. This show I am going to call...."Behind Closed Doors".
My other revolving show is going to be of my mannequins. I am going to turn conservative mid-west america on its head (hopefully) by doing a show called "Cabaret des Péchés" (cabaret of sins). Nine mannequins in total....seven dealy sins, as well as one "Roi de ciel" (King of Heaven) and of course last but not least in this big chess game we call life...."L'ange tombé" (the fallen angel). It will have a chess piece theme. I will turn each of my beautiful mannequins into chess pieces of each deadly sin and the last two will be the players. The battle between all that is good and all that is not for the lives and souls of us all. I think it is enchating, thoughtful and it will stir up some S#*&.....so what else would I do?
So we will see, I will post each one as they are done and keep you up to date on the progress.
Je veux goûter chaque de vous. Mon beau peu promesses. À temps, ma patien fonctionne légèrement.
