Art Description

Painting: Acrylic on Canvas.

It was the famed editor of Vogue, Diana Vreeland, who declared that pink was the navy blue of India. The artist/poet embraces this philosophy, donning a winter coat that carries in its colour not only the memory and hope of spring but a vibrance that is considered normality.

This self-portrait captures the artist while taking pictures of ice fishing cabins on the frozen Outaouais River in Québec (where she would get frost bite for her devotion).
