Even Further Adding

….to my two previous offerings….

…just some skulls and bones…

…and some more…

…and some more…

…and some more…

…is that enough?…

…I’m not sure I should be the judge….

Further To My Previous Offering

..onto the next two…

…but first….

…remember this from way back in February last year?…

…it’s a colour guide for these….

…same pattern as last post…

…and yes…

…the colours on one piece mirror the colours on the other….

…oops…blurry….

…but you get the idea…

…right?…

…(please don’t make re-take the pic’s…it took for ages!!..and was exhausting)….

Stuff I Finished Last Year

…alternatively titled “Stuff I Spent All Of Last Year Making”….

…”but was too sick to finish, frame and photograph till now”

…the frames are 865mm x 620mm…

…they (all 10 of them) are in “matched” pairs…

…some of the photos aren’t great because – long-covid-brain….

…but hopefully they’ll give you the idea….

…now to build up enough steam to maybe organise an exhibition…

…(…er…with long-covid-brain….who am I kidding?!!?…might take me a long while….)…

…(but stay tuned just in case)….

Paintbook 63-64

….the packaging said “64 sheets”…

…bastards were counting the end pages!…

…completely screwed my numbering system…

…couldn’t bring myself to use the covers…

…so smacked them with a collage of all the post it notes to self that go with the finished pieces I’ve worked on….

…there…

…will count the pages in Paintbook II before I start the numbering….

…oh….

…and here is a video run thru of the whole thing….

Last Weeks Mystery Object Explained

…it’s one of these….

….came with this bright idea for containing my paints aaaages ago….and have been using a cardboard mock-up of what I had in mind since then….

….finally got it made when a looming project required an up tick in how many colours I need at my finger tips….

…the paint brush hole was a late add in, necessitated by the fact that I’d no longer have space for a paint brush pot on the edge of my work space after adding the new improved paint box….

…(yes I’m still stalling for time on the big secret project)….

…(and may continue to do so for an unspecified length of “awhile”)…

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….)
