Still Here

…amassing unfinished works…

…trying to find time and space to relax…

…whilst getting to grips with the new self-constructed workspace….

….nearly there….

…nearly back to blogging!!

What Is A Boy To Do

…..that’s it….less than a crate of stock left…three items still to be collected….the large radio station record unit (that’s still in the pictures) has gone to it’s new forever home….

…the record shop is finally closed….(apart for some tax stuff)…

…now I can have my hallway back….

…and my free time?….

…I’ll be dealing with these….IMG_0449IMG_0450IMG_0451

…75 or so “donor” paintings, just waiting to be “Otcopied”, that have amassed whilst I’ve been busy….

…(has anyone seen my paint brushes?)….

…(and why does there seem to be rather of a lot of wooden items accumulating ’round the house?…are they possibly associated with “Toneware”)….

….(hmmm, I’m going to be busy, aren’t I?).

I Shoulda

…taken a photo this before I “octopied” it….

…the original artist tried to sell at the price in the picture below….

….and when it appeared in one of my local charity shop haunts it was priced at….

…which I considered to be way too much for the amount of beige it contained….waaay too much….

…then, after a long period of time,  it popped up in the “free-bin” out side said charity shop….and feeling the need to adjust  the amount of beige in the composition …it became….  …and was immediately claimed by Dee…who also likes partially covered beige…and the Otago harbour….…but not cruise ships….

 

Eggs

…nobody told me they lay eggs….

…Eggs!

…(starting to tidy up some partially finished “octopieds” form the last 5 months or so….now that the record shop is finally gone I can start churning out art again….)

…(Moeraki boulders are a naturally occurring formation that can be seen up the coast from where I live in Dunedin….they are not eggs.)

I Wasn’t Going To Say Anything Until A Few More Pieces Were Finished

…but….

…I had these wooden plates/platters just lying around and time on my hands…

…and…

…pencil, paint, pokerwork the skull & bones…

…repeat for the patterny bits…

…polyurethane….

…I’m calling it “Toneware”.

Hum 3

….or “Bali Hai 2” if you will….another that has taken ages to finish….but I’m home with my leg up after twisting my knee at work….the perfect easel….or lap top lap….

…aaand I’ve finished selling the record shop on-line….just a few loose ends to tidy up, a couple or three parcels to send, then I can sort my studio space…..(ooooooo, studio space)…put picture rails in my hall way and get these damn “Octopieds” off the floor & out of storage & hanging!!!….

….soon.
