Do you know who are the happiest people in the world - Grandmothers. Ask them about their children and their faces will light up. They will tell you story after story about what the 2 year old said. Iphones were invented for grandmothers to share pictures. They are very happy.
I was content by this try. Babies are hard to paint if you are used to adults. At this point I am happy if it looks like a baby and not an old man. Their proportions are all wrong. Why don't they grow up?
Some of us had a great new year party. One of us did not.
It all started when I began cooking. Mully hates the smoke detector and gets into a frenzy when it goes off. She is beginning to sense earlier and earlier that it is about to make that awful noise and starts panicking. Unfortunately I bake by smoke detector. I am capable of burning anything and everything.
She did join us and presided beautifully at the head of the table. All was going well until the noise makers came out.
That didn't go well at all. Almost as bad as the smoke detector. Sorry Mully next year we`ll go out and leave you alone.
This is the first painting of 2018 - a quick painting of how sad she is.
Mully's unfortunate New Year
Happy New year to all and hope you had more fun than Mully
I am having an amazing fall, so good that I am pinching myself.
The first show I participated in was called`To Mr Cohen with Love, sincerely a Friend` at Viva Vida Art Gallery. Don't you just love the title. Is there anyone that doesn't adore Leonard Cohen and considered him a friend, especially in Montreal.
I have mentioned before there are few artists that appeal both to the French and English. In Montreal he is adored by everyone. He insisted on being buried in Montreal and any tributes to him would be in Montreal. (it is coming up soon and I don't have tickets).
I submitted 3 paintings to the show and they were bought by the same person.
This picture is awful but it does show the 3 dots. Those spots of red bring joy to my heart.
Someone at the show liked Hallelujah and was sorry that it was sold (I wasn't) and commissioned a similar painting.
It was hard to make a similar painting. Clearly my career as a forger is over.
