WOw time is passing quickly almost May and the begining of summer!

There never seems enough time anymore, so many books to read, places to go, movies to see.....

I just posted in my gallery  a study of a subway station, one of those grimy ones you get in less affluent areas of a city.

I think the image is abit stale and not a very exciting piece, more an exercise, so I have decided to smash it up a bit and do a paint over, add a monster ripping it apart! WIll post soon.

Cavern base Flight deck

I had a quiet sunday and I spent an enjoyable day painting this image.
The lighting is a little inspired by The Hudson river school painters who I greatly admire.

Greetings,

It can be quite tough being an artist or creating art. There is something very personal about what we all create. We nurture and feed it like a new born and then when we feel its ready and sometimes before, we push it out into the harsh world to fend for itself.

We wince as it lives and dies under scrutiny of anothers eyes, suffering the slings and arrows of critique until it is forgotten, already we are nurturing a new creation to begin the whole traumatic process again.

And without further ado I give you the Temple of Courage.
