Pastel Monster

Abstract, and not a pumpkin in sight. Mwahahaha!

ATC-sized watercolour scribbling… expanded, of course. And poorly photographed.

Perhaps you can see something else…?

Vamprilla

Vamprilla thought she was a looker
And for a mistress folk often mistook ‘er
But the judgmental lot
Reeled when they got
To know she was really a ‘sucker

Well, I have to do something for Hallowe’en, haven’t I?

Buildings in Miniature

A pyramid:

A Castle:

My new ‘.T.’ series. ATC-sized watercolour pen/pencil interpretations of anything that comes to mind. Quick, five-minute doodles of colour, blended, and photographed wet. Abstract jottings of wherever my mind, and the watercolours decide to take me.

The pyramid, I’ve just created now. The castle, several weeks ago. You never know… there may be more!

It’s About Time!

…and Naïve art.

I learned a new phrase today, ‘Naïve art’. Basically it’s art created by a person who lacks the formal education and training that a professional artist has, or art that is almost childlike.

Being a big kid at heart, and only being trained so far in art, I feel I fall into this particular art movement most easily. However, professional artists try to emulate this particular style, which then has it’s own name, ‘primitivism’. My artwork, I’m pleased to say, is naturally primitive and I now try to emulate no style other than my own. We artists have to be unique, don’t you know?

Inspired by the phrase Naïve Art, and thinking it was high time I posted another post on this blog before the gremlins take control and wires start coming away from the edges, I decided to create a piece of Naïve art based on time. Unfortunately, the gremlins have taken control of my tablet, so I had to create my piece of art using the mouse. I know. I know. How childlike. How primitive.

I also, as is usually the case whenever I decide to do something, didn’t really have a lot of time, so just dabbed and clicked and tweaked and added text and created the images below.

Now that this is posted, I need to lie down in a darkened room. Abstract art can be so time consuming when you only have so much to spare!

Back to the Mansion

The Mansion 1

With the days getting shorter and cooler, thank goodness, and bones healing, I think it’s time that I ventured back into the Mansion. That’s the back of the Mansion up there, by the way. I’m going to make some very long overdue replies to comments – by that, I mean long overdue, not long comments… the comment posters may have even forgotten about the comment, so there’s no point waffling on endlessly about something that has most probably been forgotten.

A bit like this post, but that’s what it is.

I’m still here.

And I’m coming back.

(You know what I mean…!)
