Taking Courage with my Lexicon

Wow its been a while since I posted that video. I have been busy though, my 92 yr old mom was sick, shes home now thank's be to God.

I have started painting again, I began these types of Marks a while ago now, and have decided to go with the flow. Im just following my old Mantra, Making marks and seeing where they lead, which I learned back in 1993 in an Andre Breton manifesto and have tried to follow since then coming up with all sorts of painting...

I have taken a clip of a review and a photo of the cover along with a link with which  to secure a copy.

From my mind to yours {Dyptich}

Posted on 4 January, 2019 at 4:05 Comments comments (0)


Painted on 2 canvasses, which can be separated, I've titled "From my mind to yours" because it’s a subliminal painting. It has so many levels or images that suddenly appear in your mind, everybody having their own experience. There are trees and elephants to name a few obvious ones, like a walk in a forest. Anyway, hopefully it'll be as loved as I love it and if you have a good imagination can see the head with branches growing out of it and the nude bending over instead of...

Post Initial Experiments.

Posted on 27 December, 2018 at 22:15 Comments comments (0)

I have had a great time experimenting with Gestural Marks. If you know anything about me you will remember I always loved Gestural mark making and you may have realized  I couldnt always produced the kind of Art I desired, shooting off into all directions, having a mish mash of paintings and of the gestural ones only a few were the way I have wanted to work. This has been very frustrating to me  all the while, it has brought me to the point where I have taken a short course with Nan...

I have been working hard on freeing up my expressive marks. As you may know I used to say I make marks and see where they lead me. Well I have not been too happy sometimes with where they led, so I am taking some time with Psychologist Artist Mentor Nancy Hillis. I am learning  how to free up my mark making and express myself in a variety of mediums. I can share more exercises in my Facebook page if you can join me there.

New Direction

I have set myself on a journey to create my best abstracts, because I have a yearning in my soul of what I want to create and then I desire to follow through with consistency. These snaps are an exploration in colour and mark making, of which I have had desire or vision from my uni days. I have always said I make marks and see where they lead. Well I have been doing that and my paintings ha...

There were artists, politicians, and guests with lots of speeches and plenty of wonderful culinary creations to eat.

Painting at Eurambeen in November 2018

Posted on 27 November, 2018 at 5:15 Comments comments (0)


Eurambeen was a great success, lots of people to talk to and a successful days work painting live on the saturday. A potters shed caught my eye. I painted two small studies then a larger canvas which was auctioned on the Sunday and the owner of the Historic Home and Gardens bought it. He told me he had enjoyed watching it develop from nothing to the finished painting and was amazed at how many varieties of green I could create.
