new white tent . a few things about the tents!
i thought i'd show + tell about the tents because i seem to keep painting them! they are my current inspiration.
i associate them with childhood holidays + music festivals, and the fun of sleeping outside under the stars ~ breaking free from the routine of hoping into bed like normal. even though home was in a country area when i was a child, the excitement of setting up a temporary outdoor 'home' was big!
there were many christmas holidays in the late 70s with 2 family tents in our backyard and a family from interstate in each of them . . .
. . . the romance and escapism of a road trip and visiting new landscapes + environments are subjects that pop up in my work quite often.
