Lockdown 3

…the truth is I’m not really locked down…I work for a transport firm…unloading truck & trailer units and rail wagons, late at night, with a fork lift…I’m “essential”…at least while the freight still flows…we’ve already had our hours cut and start times moved as the numbers of truck arrivals are reduced….

…I’d have to admit to being a little disappointed that all the projects that immediately sprang to mind when the lockdown was announced, are now out of reach…especially with the shift in start/finish times meaning that I’ll be arriving home very close to my usual bedtime reducing the amount of daylight hours/Dee not sleeping hours available to me to nil…. so I’m picking that I’ll be sleep maladjusted and more than a little bit grumpy for the duration….(will be painting up a storm and/or complaining blogging in the wee hours to console myself)…..

…yay….

….could be worse…

…while I’m at work my hallway could fall foul to an infestation of musicians and the instruments they rode in on…

…(note – amplifier in middle of hallway is disproportionately larger than attached instrument and plugged into the outlet closest to the log burner)….

…(not a trip hazard at all)….

Lockdown 2

…had our “essential” hours cut at work today…large reductions in freight mean less for the storepersons to do…might eventually have to stay home…thus reducing my reasons to enjoy the wonderment of driving around a city without traffic or people…….can foresee being able to dust off the to-read pile next to the bed in the near future….

Something A Little Deeper Perhaps

….mmmm…kidney shaped bowl….

…(…rediscovered this under the pile of flat trays!…must have a tidy up in the art pile and see what else I haven’t posted….)….

Slightly Larger Than The Last One

…but no less attractive with it’s gold/black/silver livery surrounding a rampant tentacle….

…and a slightly sideways view for those of us who require knowledge of depth….

…(mmmm…rampant tentacle)….

I Just Scrolled Back To See What The Last +oneware Item I Showed You Was

….and it turns out I’ve not really been posting much for 6 whole months!…

…my…doesn’t time fly when you get sick of your job and decide to go out and find another and that turns out to be a mind bending nite shift that completely removes you from the public eye and screws with your body clock so that it seems you only able to work and paint and grunt at the long suffering Dee?….

…yep…

…time flies alright….

….so we’ll start out gentle-like with a small one….

….yep….

…lure back ’em in, nice and easy….

The Official Title Is

…..”Fat White Jesus Busts Some Light-sabre Moves In The Desert Before Performing The Miracle Of Turning Camel Pats Into Pizzas And Ass Wee Into Wine Beer”……

…but around here we affectionately refer to it as “pew pew pew pew pew pew pew pew pew”…..

…acrylic & pyrography on recycled ply… 450 x 890 sans the re-purposed, “failed” crackle pattern frame…colours by Resenes (yay test-pots!)….

…a big shout out to the all makers of retro paint by numbers for the mesa “guidelines”…..without you this would have been crap…..

Good god Is that The Time

…so busy making stuff I forgot my words…

…and the best I can do for a “triumpant” return is this repurposed touristy trinket from the Maldives….

…(….he didn’t even have the forethought to synchronise it with the actual doomsday clock…pfft…lazy!….)….

…(…and in his somewhat lack-lustre defence he will point out that he did go to the trouble of turning the fish upside down…that took ages…)…

…hey…I’m back.

…(shall not promise more or regular….but will try….)
