I had a little bit of spare time (it doesn’t happen often) so I decided to paint some of the things that have been lingering unfinished in my sketchbooks. I first saw this haute couture Yves Saint Laurent gown on pinterest and it immediately captured my imagination. It makes me think of Monet, summertime, gardens and fairy princesses. Can you imagine the work that went into sewing all that embellishment by hand? Truly a work of wearable art.
