Hold it together

Hold it together

This is another in my series of surreal space junk series in which I paint random objects in the night sky. 

Apparently kilt pins were introduced by Queen Victoria who is reputed to have taken pity on a young soldier who, on a very windy day, was afraid that his modesty would be compromised so she gave him her own brooch to pin to his kilt apron to hold it in place. She then decreed that all military kilts should have a means of fastening the apron down and so the kilt pin was born. 

Painted in acrylic fine art spray paint and acrylic paint on a deep set box canvas which can either stand upright or be hung as is without the need for a frame.
