Original Artwork - Delys (Custom Framed)

$1,630.00

76x101cm on deep edge canvas with custom timber float frame. Please not colour is not accurate in last photo but it serves to show scale and the stunning frame.

Delys (Dellie-cuddles for short) is my great aunt. That’s my grandmother’s sister if you’re doing the math. She is a ray of sunshine in this world - all beautiful antique rings and Laura Ashleigh furniture that is matchy but not matchy and regular phone calls and she always says ‘I love you’ before hanging up. If I call over to see her she has the full formal Royal Albert tea service ready for the afternoon and the smell of roast lamb leg roast for dinner wafting from the kitchen because she knows that’s my favourite - and you know rightly she has saved the little extra juicy bone bit with the marrow inside for me to gnaw like a chicken drumstick like I did as a six year old and she will pretend not to flinch as I enthusiastically grab it with my fingers and chew away and she will politely pass me a white linen napkin when I’m done. Delys is the first to tut at a new boyfriend but was also the first to embrace hubby like a long lost son when we got engaged. She has the latest season Peter Alexander pjs (because cool auntie) and she always has some wrapped up for you, too (because extra cool aunt.) I love her lots and every crepuscule/dusk/sunset piece I make is with her in mind. May we all live to a golden age of golden amazingness like my Aunt Delys and may these pieces remind us to always stay golden. (Even though the blush/apricot/peach/cream tones are good, too.) Be more like Delys. Stay golden.
