Many people ask me how long it takes me to make one painting. I did the sketching in the end of May, and the framing was done a couple of weeks ago, which means it took almost 4 months (!) from idea to finished art piece.
Have you ever craved that "it" thing? I would definitely add the orange Hermès bracelet to that category. There is this extremely fascinating hysteria of luxury consumption going on, but at the same time we have this other trend in today's society - Do It Yourself (DIY). They are two extremes: shopping vs DIY, and I've combined those two in the same painting.
How do you feel about consumption? Does it stress you or can you handle it? Do you treat yourself to these things or are you strong enough to resist? Or maybe you don't care at all?
Remember, if you want a bracelet but can't afford it, you can always make your own ;)
