I have always made connections even when none existed. "Wishing" is a series of paintings of the wishbone from long past dinners, prepared for my significant other, painted on old Vanity Fair "Spy" illustrations.
Each issue of Vanity Fair at the time contained a full page color lithographic portrait of a well known sovereign, statesman or man of the day, caricatured in a uniquely good-natured manner which became famous as the 'Vanity Fair Style'. Working under the pseudonyms of 'Spy' (Sir Leslie Ward, 1851-1922) .
Wishing on and always contemplating my personal affairs. More paintings to come.
