Amy Winehouse stole my beehive

Henriette is always discernable by her black beehive hairstyle which pre-dates Amy "Wijnhuis", by quite some time. This little scribble from last year (oil on paper 30 x 40) looks like an excercise in using up whatever was left on my palette and I think it had better be the last yellow nude I ever make as I can't think what possessed me to make her such a billious colour. All the same I thought to post it because, simplistic as it is, it's an affectionate and enthusiastic little piece. Tomorrow its the print studio and the call of the acid bath again...

This is absolutely cool! What a vibrant painting (and I hope that is not the last "yellow nude" you would do).

I was introduced to your work by my brother Jack Wilson in The Hague. I am Jack's brother in New York and painting has always been a hobby of mine (see http://www.rawstrategies.com/pntg/paintings.htm )

I noticed we have a couple of things in common (I love Tom and Jerry and West Side Story). Love classical music (I am currently listening to the powerful end movement of Rimsky Korsakov's Scheherazade).

I hope to see more of your post and new paintings! Keep up the great work. Love it!

Best wishes from New York.
