Face 17 - BORED was always one of my favourites from this series of paintings, but I don't remember anyone else ever remarking upon it. When I showed this series - my first solo show ever at Polychrome Fine Art in 2009 - I was so amazed by which paintings stood out for people, and why. Oftentimes the paintings that people liked or mentioned were not at all those I considered my best, and the reasons people gave for liking certain paintings was always a surprise. BORED had a certain something I always liked, and I'm going to hazard a guess that Wurbsie, who bought the painting last month, must feel the same. I'm going to miss BORED, as I've been gazing upon her face for 5 years now.
Wurbsie had the painting framed. If others have done the same with paintings from this series I am not aware of it, so I was interested to see the results. This photo is from a text she sent to me, so may not be the best in terms of resolution:
Thank you for your purchase, Wurbsie.
