I Shotgun 1

Pink and green shotgun pistol acrylic painting by Australian Artist Merry Sparks

In 2012 I visited the Tower of London and visually feasted on three decorative, bejewelled-with-real-BLING pistols donated to Queen Liz 2 from significant jewellers – Harry Winston, Tiffanys and Faberge.  Utilising my creative eye on the spot, photography and even more creative skills back in the studio, they are featured in this series.  Although I am against violence, somehow these guns are rather pretty and I couldn’t resist the opportunity to do this series.
