First series of paintings since returning from 1+1/2 years overseas.
modern art 2015
You have been a rural Pierre Puvis de Chavannes tripper-snipper coupe of Le Rustique camembert on Jean-Louis French oak log's from Christophe's wood yard fired oven bread, slightly charred base with small remnants of coal, eat too much and your stomach huffs as an extinguished well used fire place during European harsh winters running non-stop-like for fear of cold-feet-on-floor-don't-like-wearing-slippers-coz-my-feet-will-sweat friendly place. Basically, you kept me on my toes, you kept me warm and sometimes cold and you allowed me to feel gut buzzers as good slugs of Pere Magloire Fine V.S. Calvardos will give you on a lonely evening.
Thank you so much.
It's always difficult photographing large paintings. Even more so when the paintings are taller than the height of most ceilings. We find ways of doing things even if it causes our thermals to dampen with sweat on a cold day.
My soft box lighting? The chromatic sky.
My camera? An out of date Sony Cyber-shot.
The results? Far better than expected. Check out the new work titled, Neuf Jardins d'Eden.
Keep an eye on this post as snippets of new work are constantly caught on the web.
As new shows for 2016 skirmish their way closer a variety of new projects are in the making.
I painted the first two outdoors whilst fighting off Gloucester Old Spots and Ouessants. Each session I found tubes of paint eaten and brushes strewn across fields and dale. Therefore, these two where painted in the nouvelle grotte with belligerent bats for mates.
Still far from cushy for the roof was missing most of the time.
