    Hello Brian,

    Sorry for the confusion. We have a couple of art aficionados who enjoy posting and discussing various artists etc…

    I usually just create a new post (without any text) when the threads get too file-heavy (due to the size of the image files).

    But rest assured most of our other posts contain the same insightful and crucial news and information most Australians find essential to function in today’s modern society.

    This one’s a bit less, shall we say, cluttered. Thanx reb.

    Brian makes a lot of sense.

    Clever Reb, very very clever. What’s the title? The middle aged frump sans earring?

    What painting or artist do you reckon inspired this picture by Christopher Lamb, exhibited at last year’s Camberwell art show?

    I wondered why you were posting the same piccie again tosy.

    Pays to read and get some context 🙂

  20. January 22, 2015 8:10 pm

    The more I look at these portraits of Robet Louis Stevenson by Sargent, the more I appreciate both men. How did Sargent capture the lankiness of RLS, and why was RLS so … I dunno, cool?

    I’m thinking of acquiring some of this fine work…

    by Ivan (the Gorilla)

  22. January 22, 2015 8:25 pm

    Good idea. If you can’t corner the market in card-playing dogs, then gorilla paintings would be the next best investment. What could possibly go wrong?

    G’day, ee … JB’s obviously broken put her neck out … looking for knife throwers would be my guess …

    I’m thinking of acquiring some of this fine work…

    Send me an email, ToM … I’ll knock a couple up for you tomorrow … 😉

    Son’s got a white, 66, Pony, ToSY … luckily he’s a mm by trade 🙂 … calls on his old man occasionally, for diagnosis discussions 😉 … lovely shot …

    BTW, I really like that Dali … very clever …

    Those two photos may demonstrate a little bigotry, ToSY …

    People in glass houses should have thicker skins …

    February 4, 2015 1:17 pm

    And before you go inventing interpretations of what I mean …

    Stalin should have been popped in 1919 … that’s hardcore bigotry I know …

    Lenin, had a dream … pity about everyone else who had to actually live it …

    But then … there this …

    The phrase ‘clutching at straws’ comes to mind.

    Just did my first workshop with David Chen. Boy, do I have a lot to learn. Luckily, he seems a good teacher.

    I think I’ve improved on last night;s picture:

    Reb thinks I’m stoned. I’m not sure.

    😯

  47. February 11, 2015 12:33 pm

    “”I think I’ve improved on last night;s picture””

    Debatable. It was beginning to look a bit like Nick Cave, but then you went and fucked it all up.

    Is it a self portrait?

  48. February 11, 2015 4:27 pm

    You’re right, I fucked it up. (It’s not a selfie.)

    Note to self, try not to paint drunk.

    Drunk is better than stoned …

    My old man painted (charcoal, pencil, ink, pastel, oils and the one thing he constantly wanted to improve was his water colours ) …

    I once got an agitated phone call from him and he was in a panic and could I come over right away …

    … he was painting the crucifixion of JC ascending through clouds (perspective looking down on the top of the cross – as if you were a bird flying over it and the cross was heading to one side of you) …

    He was alone … he’d been painting all day and he was as pissed as a parrot!

    He reckoned he could see the cross moving and a voice was talking to him FFS!

    (He believed in dog but he wasn’t a dogbotherer by any stretch of the imagination) …

    Sorry, ToSY, you just triggered the memory!

    Nice story, TB. 😉

    I’ve grown out of the “dogs playing cards” artistic genre…

  57. February 24, 2015 9:59 pm

    It’s a shame, but everyone moves on at some stage.

  58. February 24, 2015 10:48 pm
