Fallen Angels

 I've come to view my collection of objects as just as important to me as the paintings which were inspired by them. Some, like 'Encore!' (a puppet theatre) have gradually turned into an installation.

I noticed while I was getting ready for my first tour last week that the theatre needed  attention. Two  gold angels had fallen off the front of the proscenium arch and some gluing was required.

We used this model for many years to entertain our family and after all our shows were over I set up the puppets to represent my father saying goodbye to his three sons. In the painting, we  become the puppets.

 You should see images of this on my Facebook and Instagram posts later today.
