Peach Cobbler

I could be an abstracter. I could do a video of potato on tile. Then I would be famous. Then people would pester me. I don't like people. Maybe I could just have them send money. Bink to Blow!

Vote Early Vote Often

I have to actually work and take care of business and contrary to the silly idea on Daily Painters of producing more art and driving the prices so low that you will not recover the price of materials, I am going to paint less. Blogging is fun but DPs will be out. Vote for your favourite and a little flattery would be nice. Blow me, er up!

Exercising- Vote For Favourite

The way that I think works best for me is to work out a composition and then pound it, paint it paint it paint it until I can paint it no more. Having established the compo I can explore different aspects of my palette, textures etc. I'm free to paint and of course I'm never satisfied but its my way of practicing the craft. Bink to blow and then vote.

Collage 1986

I sat down to do a collage and proceeded to glue my fingers so I painted one instead. Bink to come unglued.

The Station

The buildings in this painting actually exist. When we were building a new bridge at Lytton, these buildings were at the north end of the bridge on the reserve. Everybody thought they were old buildings but in fact they were part of a movie set that was left standing and one houses a store. The name of the movie is "The Pledge" and it starred Jack Nicholson.

Ford Cabriolet

I consider the painting that I have done to this point to be my apprenticeship requirements. I consider the paintings to be my "idea" bank. I think I may be ready to actually paint. However I don't feel much like painting. I'm finishing a commission and I'm doing concrete jobs. Putting up these posts gives me a chance to look at my life's work and then regret all the time I've wasted. This car will show up in a complete big painting later........Bink to expand on the subject!

Olde Favourite

"Wreck a nize" this fellow, one of my first subjects. I painted these guys over and over to learn about watercolour and to explore the myriad possibilities of the same drawing. Then the subjects become your own created entities. Blast from the past, click to get the bigger picture.

Hunchback of Motor Lane

Shapes and colours, people- thats the thing. Drawing and composing is the chore, painting is the pleasure. Lazy artists paint the same thing over and over and over. Bink to blow.

Think of all the places this wreck has seen and it avoided the crusher. This is a survivor, but of what? Tell me..."Pump it UP"
