Into The Mystic
So the big Christmas holiday is coming to an end and tomorrow we start posting regularly again and not a moment too soon. There’s been a lot happening and it took a considerable amount of willpower to resist the urge to throw my two cents into the conversation but I succeeded – and I’m glad I did.
The break was refreshing and gave me an opportunity to spend valuable time with Maggie.
We had a lovely Christmas. It was calm and peaceful except for that part when my grandson opened up the remote control Batmobile we got him for Christmas. That got a fairly significant AWESOME – TOTALLY AWESOME followed up by about a half an hour of the Batmobile getting stuck under the coach, behind the dining room table and basically bouncing off walls.
I’m really driven by it this year and have already done four paintings and am starting number five which is normally close to my usual seasonal output. I have a feeling we’re going to run out of wall space in my studio for the finished pieces.
Anyway, just for fun, I’m posting pictures of my latest paintings partly to share with you my other passion and partly to get warmed up for more serious blogging tomorrow. Blogging is like playing sports, you can get seriously banged up if you don’t warm up first.
So here goes.
Each of these paintings is inspired by photographs shared by a friend in South Africa who posts some amazing pictures on his Facebook page. His name Tian Cronje and I am constantly amazed by some of the things he shares.
I apologize for the poor reproduction quality but the camera isn’t being overly cooperative and seems to be distorting the colour a bit.
If you drop by tomorrow, we can jump into the Mystic of 2014 together.
