Book: example of dry brush technique

Seems like quite a while ago that I mentioned a book in the works – to be published in the UK – that will use one of my paintings as an example of dry brush technique. Now they’re giving me an opportunity to see the bio they came up with, so I took the opportunity to make some changes.

Singer #4 by Jean Smith throwsilver@hotmail.com
“Singer #4” (11 x 14′ acrylic on canvas panel, 2017)

Hi R____,

Sorry for the delay getting back to you. I’m looking for property to open the Free Artist Residency for Progressive Social Change where all types of artists can come and stay for free while working on projects that intend to change the world. So I need space for the writer’s cabin, a soundproofed rehearsal studio, painting studio, accommodation etc. I’m getting very close now!

Here’s the text with a few changes.

“Jean Smith is a Vancouver-based painter, writer and singer regarded as an inspiration to the 1990s social movement known as Riot Grrrl. Her contemporary portraits, based on photographs, are about complex emotions related to feminism and anti-capitalism. She sells the 11 x 14″ series for $100 USD on Facebook, making her work accessible to other artists, musicians and writers she’s met along the way. Sales above her monthly expenses go towards opening the Free Artist Residency for Progressive Social Change off the west coast of Canada.”
