Remembering when we used to party

I came across a little quote “Party while you can because no one looks back on their life and remembers the nights they got plenty of sleep”. This made me think about this last year when our lives have been on hold and wondering how we will look back on this time. Will we forget and the days will blurr into gratefulness for quiet, peace and the goodness of so many people? When I thought about my next painting I decided to depict an after-party feeling so we can console ourselves that being hung-over and a bit let-down isn’t so great really!

After the Party. Acrylic on wood. 61 x 72 cm

About angela brittain

Each work I create has a search for “rightness” – an attempt to solve complex and often self-imposed compositional problems. They often have a tension below the surface. I work mainly in oil or acrylics on board. People fascinate me but I’m not sure that I made a conscious decision to make people central to my work or if this subject chose me. I have a Diploma in Art and Design and worked for several years as a graphic designer and illustrator before finally returning to my first love of drawing & painting in 2008. I have taught art to children and adults and currently offer one-to-one workshops from my home studio in West Sussex. I am a Member of the Society of Women Artists (SWA) and exhibit in London and the South.
