Mauchline Holy Fair 28th May 2011

I have enjoyed creating work for this year’s Holy Fair at Mauchline in Ayrshire. The Holy Fair is a sort of re-enactment of the Holy Fair in the past and the committee expect stall holders to dress up accordingly.

I have been creating small affordable works that capture the poetry of the time but embody modern styles of painting and presenting images.

This picture depicting a scene from the Tam O Shanter poem by Robert Burns is acrylic laid over gold creating a multi layered platform for the poetry and dancers.
