About this painting
A painting about the artist Grayson Perry. The transvestite artist seems to be eternally enthusiastic, and the image of a scarecrow in a field, gazing in wonder, suddenly amazed by a beautiful pink bird among the crows is an ideal metaphor.

Visually this work is related to my other two scarecrow paintings, and is probably unconsciously linked to those works about loss and victimisation. Perhaps then, this work is about rebirth and confidence.

This is perhaps the first transvestite scarecrow painting in the world.

Technical details
Like most of my paintings, everything has a source image to copy from. The scarecrow here was a plasticine model. The thick string seemed to match the straw hair of the scarecrow and artist perfectly.
