Dready ‘going to Glyndebourne’ …

                    dready art’s going to glyndebourne – 18×16 …

a photograph i saw, of a couple elegantly dressed, looking tired as if dawn had found them in their party clothes reminded me of something and inspired me to draw this dready  …

glyndebourne is a typical british summer t’ing: an opera festival, near lewes, that incorporates country picnic with opera and black tie dress …

you arrive early and you can wander the grounds of the estate; perambulate ’round the lake, have a picnic … you can bring it with you, or they’ll provide one …

so you have a wander and have a picnic, if you want, and then there’s some opera for a couple of hours … then the long interval, which is time for more picnic-ing or eating indoors at a choice of restaurants.

then more opera …

is a cool experience whether you re british or not, whether you like opera or not … the dying of the light, the green of the grass, the softness of the sheep, the elegant house as back drop, the well dressed people, the freshness of the air …

coolness!
