4 new pieces

Have a few more abstract pieces here, not sure about titles yet but i'm sure something will spring to mind! Lovely evening here, sun is shining and the weather people say it's gonna be hot later in the week. 'Hot' meaning 20degrees C....




I might call this one 'Pigs In Spaaaaaccccceeee' 'cause they look a bit like cute little piggys... i think.

More cosmic bubbles in space

I was trying to DIY block mount today... Not the easiest thing in the world to do i might add. The results were mixed to say the least, tho i do remember back to the first printed canvas i stretched, that was pretty pretty bad! The trick is getting the mdf cut straight, then orienting the print onto it, well, duh!! Anyway the reason i'm looking at this angle is cause the abstract stuff i'm doing right now is fairly sharp looking, so a canvas print will deaden that sharpness, a high gloss print is whats needed. But there is no way in hell, (hell, i tell you) that i can afford to get stuff professionally block mounted. So it's gotta be DIY. So maybe if i start out on some small prints and get them right, then i can maybe get a large sheet of mdf cut professionally, like A3plus or even A2 or go totally mental and get an A1 cut, then print a massive photo print and paste it on, i think it would look pretty pretty pretty good!!

Here's the two latest psychedelic freak-outs:

Being driven to 'Abstraction'

Hit a bit of a wall painting what was on front of me, so i started spacing out and drawing circles, which i love doing. Then i tried to mess a little bit with perspective, remembering some lessons from Piet Mondrian, trying to confuse myself, is the canvas a surface or is it '3-dimensional'. So here are 3 experiments:




I'm thinking of something like 'Plastivs' or 'Plcastivs' or something like that for titles...

Cracking up...

I've finished the garlic more or less, my mind has been slightly elsewhere, and i've been trying to book a holiday for the summer. Listening to Stereolab now, 'jenny ondioline' from 1993, class band!! So here's my garlic sitting a-top 'Orbital' (Brown)...

Intensive wip

Found it a bit slow getting back into painting after the easter break, so this one is kind of finished, tho it could do with a bit of a touch up here and there, and i could even add in more text, but i might leave it.





And here is the WIP 


Not sure how the wip is gonna look, but sure you get the idea!!
