I'm on holiday


I wish I'd painted this picture. Well, I did, but this is another Photoshop distortion from the acrylic painting. The original didn't look anything like this. Hence it ended up like the others in a landfill.

August is a break for me. I'll find some random stuff from the archives to entertain you (?) while I recharge the batteries.

Digital Distortion



More landfill. These are distortions via photoshop. The original acrylics were even less inspiring. Is it okay to say I didn't know what I was doing?

Go in hard ...

... or not at all! I'm cleaning house! Drilling down deep and cutting the crap. That's the website, the portfolio, the fraughtpolio, rejigging, rephotographing, sorting, deleting. House cleaning. I'm asking myself if I've made any progress in fifty plus years. Looking at the photograph above I'm seriously beginning to doubt it. Still, the rabbit was ripped to pieces by a pack of dogs, so ... mustn't grumble!

Still in Two Minds


There's still a part of me saying give up, while another part says persevere. Not with the creative in general, just a specific part of it. To avoid any hard decision making I spent the better part of the day working for the man and the rest of it getting work off the floor and onto the walls.

In Two Minds


I'm caught in two minds again. Is the universe trying to tell me something? I'm suspicious.

Back Again


Let us take stock, since stock is what I'm working on. There are about 17 new pieces to share with you. They are of the same ilk as what has gone previously, small scale collages on MDF board, sketches really, without any great thought and allowing the sub-conscious to battle it out with the conscious to come up with some kind of pleasing arrangement. After that there are 14 more collages, albeit on different tip, with an eye to narrative (haven't quite worked that out yet). And there are seven big MDF blanks and several more frames begging for content.

And. And. And. There are about twenty, more or less, collages made back in 2016 that didn't quite make the grade as pleasing objects in their own right. I'll keep the odd example and likely include photographs of all in any catalogue I might make at the end of the year for proof of life, concept or evidence of crime. Whatever.

Those works that didn't make it past the censor however cannot rest in piece. I'll mine their dead bodies for materials and mayhap some digital pieces, which, one might hope, might in turn influence further real world objects. I'm like a dog with a chew stick. I like to worry images until they work for me. They are never allowed to rest once entered into my canon.
