Anxious Green

Painting completed yesterday (09/02/2014). 'Anxious Green' acrylic on canvas 40 cm x 40 cm
Number 2 in a series exploring ideas of mental health. This one has the top of Tina's head and a selection of garden birds (it is not a comment on her mental health). Not sure about the green, could be read as grass, when I am more interested in a slightly uncomfortable colour scheme.
Went to a seminar about approaching Galleries and Curators on Saturday co run by Castlefield Gallery and a-n. Came away feeling as if I could not forward my practice without already having a relationship with a curator or to be leaving an MA course (in London), a continuing feeling of 'them' and 'us' that I have had for the last few years. Back to being much more positive today, I would be making these paintings even if I was the only one to see them, everything else is a bonus.
Think I might enter this painting in the National Open Exhibition, I have another in planning so might wait and see how that turns out.
