All the boys I've ever loved have been imaginary

All the boys I've ever loved have been imaginary


Something else i've been working at on and off over the past few months.
Dedicated to all those who are unlucky in love. Dedicated to those late bloomers. Dedicated to those who are terrified of intimacy. Dedicated to those who dislike life because it isn't the same as in those old black and white films.

  2. Any hopes of seeing this as a print?

    If the library does indeed end up hiring me this week, I will proudly blow my first paycheck on a sweet giclee.

    emily - if only. grand staircases and ermine capes and gallant men dashing to your door with top hats and corsages. :)

    L - Thanks, that's a nice compliment! I'll be ordering my next batch of prints at the end of this month, so yep, this painting will be available as a print in the shop by mid november. :)

  9. If your description wasn't relate-able enough, I own a dress that looks almost exactly like the one she's wearing. I'll definitely be buying a print :)
