Breakfast at Brown's
In this weeks ArtIHeart link up with Midlife Singlemum (pop over there to see more art!) I present to you a painting which was given to me as a present by one of The (very special) Friends, by way of marking my 40th birthday (yes, I'm still bleating on about being 40!).
The painting is the work of my friends Dad, the one and only, very talented, Peter Drury. I love Peter's work because it is witty and clever as well as being beautifully painted.
This piece pictures Audry Hepburn - who I've always had a bit of a 'thing' about - as she appears iconically in Breakfast at Tifanny's. Only here, she just so happens to be crossing the road in my home city. Brilliant!
To see more of Peter Drury's work you can go to his upcoming exhibition:-
“People make icons…Death makes legends”
"Icons and legends remain and endure after they are no longer with us in the flesh or materially. They have successfully made the journey from celebrity (a transient state) to permanence. They are now instantly recognisable to the many rather than just “those in the know”. In musical and artistic terms they continue to entertain and influence others long after they have gone."
With the support of the Amy Winehouse Foundation, The Icons and Legends exhibition by Peter Drury will be on display from Wednesday April 4th - Sunday April 8th at The Gallery On The Corner, 155 Battersea Park Road, London, SW8 4BU http://www.thegalleryonthecorner.com/
The exhibition is open to the public each day from 11am - 8pm, with proceeds from sales and donations benefiting the Amy Winehouse Foundation.
