Transparency

I've always been interested in politics, alternately amused and infuriated by the buffoonery, arrogance, and

shortsightedness shown by many,  grateful for those who show compassion

 and wisdom.But over the last few years I've become more and more

 disenchanted with the so called democracy under which most of

us toil and also the appalling amount of posturing and obfuscation which goes on within

governments - mostly in the name of pocket filling or power pumping or both.

To that end I paint only with transparent colours. It's my modest form

of protest.

Fiesta

This was painted a few months ago at the height of the festa/fiesta

season here. They love fireworks and use any excuse to stage a show.

For this reason the painting also reminds me of summer.

It's 60 by 60cm and available -  a quick message will secure it.

Morning from Malta

Morning people, the sun is out it's a gorgeous day here.

Thought I'd show you something which has always fascinated me.

So without further ado ta da.

Forgotten about these

Hope you're having a chilled sunday - I would be except for the bloody church bells.

Anyway I'd forgotten that I'd done these - digitally enhanced watercolours. If you

like them you can obtain prints and also very groovy looking duvet covers from:

Autumn

Got caught in the rain as I was delivering a couple of paintings today.

The temp has dropped to a very comfortable 25degrees, there's a sllightly

different smell in the air and so I painted this.

It's 20 by 30cm acrylic on Yupo paper and last but not least it's available

The Balloon Handler

Moving with elegance and a languid

show of grace

The ghost of a smile flits across her face

Slouching slowly behind an expression

hard to place

The bobbling balloon string tied

around his waist

They meandered along showing no signs of haste

Touching my toes - finished

Oops I forgot to post the final version of this painting. I hope no one was waiting with bated breath,

they'd have shuffled off by now haha.

Anyway I had a lot of fun with this painting and as a bonus got a bit of exercise as well.

I was told off by a friend of mine a few nights ago cos I usually forget to give sizes when I post and he said it's hard for people  to know if they want it

when they have no idea of scale - well true, so without further ado:

50 by 40cms acrylic, inks and pens on gallery wrapped canvas.

If you'd like any other info about any of my work then please just message me.

I don't bite - well only when I haven't eaten ha ha

you can always contact me on Fb if that's easier: https://www.facebook.com/LAF.Art/

Here's another from today. On paper, this is acrylic and inks.

Totally different, I know. Actually it's one of the things I really enjoy about 

working on paper, I seem to explore different  working methods.

Looking at this paintng together with the previous one which were

worked on simultaneously I can see the balance that they bring me.

Brain fog

Woke up this morning with a migraine - lovely, and the day hasn't really progressed much from there.

I've just been moving stuff around pretty aimlessly, I have managed to finish a couple of small works

on paper, which as my studio is a hideously humid  80% again, I have to be happy with.

This one is on linen paper which has a lovely feel to it.

The Pelican and the surfboard

The pelican and the surfboard, a complex relationship by all accounts, and she didn't

help. Her with her inscrutable smile, draped in her seaweed wrap.Their commonality

nowhere to be seen, unless of course you count the green.

Making suggestions

 Morning people thought I'd show you this -

 it's a piece I painted a while go and couldn't for the life of me think of a name for as happens

from time to time, so I asked for suggestions on Fb, here are some of the ideas, which I enjoyed reading

and thought you might too.If you'd like to make your own suggestions, ask questions or just generally get to know

me a little then why not pop over  to FB - you'll find me on.https://www.facebook.com/LAF.Art/

Come on over  I'd love to see you

Playing with alcohol

Morning everyone - hope your Sunday is a sunny one.This one was done Saturday evening - alcohol and acrylics, and a couple of glasses of wine to smooth things along haha

Touching my toes

I began this painting whilst listening to the Stranglers and doing my exercises.

So basically lots of energy and not much else haha.

Andrew wandered in took one look and said it was as if a child had thrown everything at

the canvas. Well he's not far wrong haha, so now I have to bring it to some kind of order. I'll post the end result in a couple of days

Diverse doodlings

I usually have at least a couple of paintings on the go at any one time at various stages of completion.

Despite this the old artist block still sometimes hits and rather than give in to it I fiddle around with

other mediums, usualy on paper or whatever is to hand. It sort of jump starts the creative juices

or just reminds me sometimes of a colour mix or a stroke that I want to try and with that I'm off again.

Here's a mix of recent doodles.

The thread that binds

The third and last one of these skins on Yupo pieces, at least for now. I really enjoy working with these colours but feel

the need to get back to the brights for a while.

Meeting at the shore

I must be a glutton for punishment. We're enjoying the Lucifer heatwave at the moment, so think

hot, sticky and hideously humid, the studio temp is hovering around 31 degrees. Which is of course why I decided that

this  should be the week I play with paint skins, these delicate easily ruined strips which stick to each other and to me

in equal proportions. As you can imagine I'm having a ball hahaha.
