Fly Free

Acrylic on Canvas



This painting is available for purchase in my Shop

'Fly Free' is a pop art portrait of the late singer/songwriter Amy Winehouse. In this painting I used vintage blue bird designs to portray the little girl whom I believe Amy Winehouse essentially still was.  Despite presenting to the world with a tough rock chick persona complete with tattoos, cigarette smoking and seemingly out of control alcoholism, in my opinion she was just a girl lost and looking for emotional comfort, love and support.   This portrait captures these contrasts which seemed to plague her towards the end of her short life.

Please Note: The stars in the background are painted gold and the blue birds have blue glitter on the heads, wings and tail feathers.

This is an original painting created with Atelier professional acrylic paints. Painted on unstretched (31.5"x31.5" / 80x80cm) 12oz Fredrix Cotton Primed Canvas. This painting will be accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity. All paintings are sealed with a high quality UV Resistant gloss varnish.
