Also titled - always step back and look at stuff from a distance.
Whitewash III took place recently. It seemed to be going so well.
The rubbed-back textured surface, the spray-painted lace, the handmade paper roses, the ribbon-tied branches, the paper bird. I was happy with the minute details.
but why-oh-why, did I not step back at the first stage?
My spray painting at the start was as ropey as an 80's espadrille. I let myself down badly. And in front of the public too. But I learnt a massive lesson. Don't get caught up in the tiny details without stepping back to take a look the bigger picture.
They were both on fire. Everyone was blown away.
To the other side was the amazing Chris Cunningham.
Organising the event was the ultra-talented Dermy. The man has magic art fingers.
