ART CENSORSHIP BITES!











Okay... It seems I am violating all sorts of rules all over the internet.

Art censorship really sucks... I could paint a picture depicting rape and violence, blood and guts, but not a harmless weeny teeny pecker....

It seems some one with a weeny teeny pecker has taken offence and deemed my artwork to immoral!!

Oh well... I shall just load them manually onto the blog.... POOH TO YOU PHOTOBUCKET!!!

I had my photos on private setting and still they got removed.

Oh well... here is my rebellion!

Some more new work!












Well.... where has the time gone!?
I have managed to paint allot of paintings, some photographed , some not... at last count I think I was up to 35 paintings, short of the 90 I was aiming for, but pretty impressive I think!!
As I have said in the past, I would rather aim super high and fail with a half achievement than to aim low and succeed!!
Anyhow... here are a few of the ones I did get to photograph!
The blue wren was painted during the demonstration at Harvest of Gippsland on Sunday... a good day despite the weather and mud!
The other paintings have been completed over the week... the man painting, was done today.
It seems these queer little people are a form of therapy, they sort of help me re arrange my memories!

Warning... partial nudity!


This painting was painted in response to a comment made in the art forum that I hang out on allot!!



My fairies are usually nude.... so I reversed it!

I have sold this painting, so whether I add more to it or not is up to the owner.
I have another one I am finishing off tonight that may lead to a change in it!

Painting number 2 for 2010...


Not absolutely sure about this one... It was going to be an acrylic like the Little moon lady, but I ended up getting carried away with the water colour, it was lots of fun...

I Love the little intricacies that water colour has, texture and movement that are only visible up close...

Any how... This painting is called "Not always as it seems" It is 12"x16" on paper mounted on board.

I painted this painting with the intention of conveying the message ,that sometimes things are not as they seem when looking at other peoples lives. Sometimes we make judgements that someones life looks grand , not aware of the real circumstances.

It would be lovely to live among the poppies, but maybe not....

Painting Number 1 , 2010






















I really REALLY want to paint 90 paintings by March.... I am aware that it is a HUGE amount of work, and I would need to paint a couple a day at least, to make it in time....


I don't really think it is achievable but i will be giving it a huge go!!


So.... this is painting number 1, ' Moon Lady' acrylic and watercolour on paper... 17 inches x 20 inches...

I have a little more to add to the painting... I was thinking of adding a frog, or another snail, but someone suggested toad stools, which i like also.... so there will be something added!!

The other photos ...







The photo's of the paintings from the other day didn't all come through...so here is take two!!



The three are all the same size and medium, and would look good as a trio, but also stand on their own!!
