Timing is Everything

22" x 15", watercolour, 1998, private collection

Like Krista Mindies Gaudi, this painting is made up of two separate photos: one of the model (familiar? she's also featured here) in my studio and one of a street in Montreal during a trip I took about a year beforehand.

It's pretty unlucky to have the buckle of your shoe come undone as you're crossing a busy street...but timing is everything.

I made a second painting featuring a closer shot of the buckle situation but with one of my abstract stained glassy backgrounds. For fun. But I guess they could go together like a comic strip to heighten the drama of her peril: does she finish in time? Does that bus hit her? Or do a bunch of people just get really pissed off?

You be the judge:
