I've noticed my blog posts being more sparse this year, and definitely more product orientated, so I've decided to start throwing in the sort of blog post I started The World of Kitsch with. Proper kitsch products, collated by me, on my own without partnership with a brand. Perhaps it'll kick start my love of blogging again, as it's started to feel like a chore, especially as my health is poor right now and I'm tired as it is.
So, I'll start with the most well know kitsch artist, Tretchikoff. He of Green Lady fame, his print was sold widely through the western world in the sixties and seventies. Bizarrely I don't own a Tretchikoff myself. I have works of Louis Shabner and J H Lynch, but I've never found a real life Tretchikoff in a charity shop, and can't spare the £100 or so I would need to call one my own from eBay.
Maybe I should go the whole hog like Red or Read's Wayne Hemmingway and just have a Tretchikoff wall!
Here is the late Amy Winehouse showing her love of the artist.
And the beautiful Lauren Laveren had the chance to be painted in Tretchikoff style. Very jealous.
For now I will have to stick to little soft furnishing touches of Tretch' round the house.
Or maybe I can be the Green Lady this Halloween?
Until I can afford my own picture mural wall anyway.
