Every now and then an idea or an image just comes to me and I have to paint it. This is how the original Amy happened, a few years ago, painted in oil on canvas as the evening sun was setting and her husky voice singing in the background. Music always inspire me but here it was her hair that provided the starting point.
This beautiful full colour screen print came about 2 years later as a reaction to the sad news of her passing and as a tribute to her, her family and fans. A lot of good is being done in her memory. For musicians with Lioness Records and the Amy Winehouse foundation which is set up by Mitch Winehouse to “provide help, support or care for young people, especially those who are in need by reason of ill health, disability, ﬁnancial disadvantage or addiction.”*
My creation of Amy will support some of this work but for now there are only 18 in this limited edition so If you want to get your “Amy Blue” head over to our LunaRei shop on Etsy
