“as a painter for over three decades, I’ve achieved most things that a painter can. I have exhibited in three countries, sold work, collected other painters work, engaged with artists groups, held the position of lead artist in more than one major exhibition, worked as curator, designer, editor and writer for two international magazines. I’ve engaged and worked with art academics and institutions on art projects, painted commissions and murals in three countries. You would think, by now, I could hang up my oil stained painting clothes and watch the emerging artists strut their stuff out onto an unsuspecting general public.
However, painting, serious painting I mean, not making images to hang over the fireplace, is a demanding mistress. I love her and hate her simultaneously. And so I continue to go to my studio and paint. I also sit at my iMac every day and write. Probably for no one in particular, certainly not for the need or want of a pat on the back or a round of applause.
You see, I’m infected with a one way love condition – And it is terminal. If you have stumbled across this art page, among the millions that are on the web – and you take a nosy around it for a few minutes, check out at the post list on the right hand side – the work from five studios, that’s life that you are looking at. Don’t think I set out to impress you with some sort of self professed prowess or genius. It’s just what I did and what I am doing – And it no better or worse than what you do with your life. Art is for sharing – all Free, it seems is to be expected – so that’s what this simple website is about.
If you want to say something…be my guest and use the form after the video where I ramble on about String Theory and abstract painting..like as if that matters 🙂 “Art what use has it – you can’t eat it, can you…”
