This painting began as a live-painting at Basscoast Festival one summer and was later completed in my studio in Squamish. I call her "Phantom Lucy" or "Lucy in the sky" due to her ethereal nature. The use of white and pastel colours make her somewhat phantom-like, but the mix of warm tones and rendering of her face make her very much alive. I chose foxglove as secondary subjects being drawn to their elegant form contrasted by their potential toxicity. The use of lavender or purple in the painting signifies the supernatural, the powerful and the feminine. LUCY calls forth all aspects of intuition, imagination and creativity.
