WIP

I've nearly finished my last commission and so have started a new ethereal landscape painting. This abstract landscape will have a predominantly white, purple and pink palette and is created on a 300 x 300 mm deep edge canvas.

Lady Gaga, The Monster's Ball, 02, London



"The Monster's Ball will set you free, London! Tonight we're gonna be super freaks!" So begins another outrageous evening with the everso bonkers Lady Gaga. More outlandish costumes and a ton of hits turned the 02 Arena into a two hour non-stop party last night. Gaga informed her screaming crowd of 'little monsters' that she is to tour again in 2011 with the release of her new album 'Born this Way', and shared one new track from that new album entitled 'You and I'. As in February this year, she finished her set with 'Bad Romance', which is still my fave.

NEW collaboration

'Le Poulet est Dans la Rue' by Andrea Farmer and Rob Kirbyson. I created the textured background on a 255 x 255 mm deep edge box canvas. Rob completed the foreground.

This is an ongoing project between members of Rogue Gene Collective. Two artists collaborate together on one artwork. One creates the background, the other the foreground with no discussion between them as to how the finished piece will appear. There is no set subject matter. This has produced interesting results and allowed each artist an insight into how the other works through the creative process.

WIP landscape commission

Mentioned in a previous blog post, here is the fourth commission in progress. Based on my ethereal landscape painting 'Amongst the Rushes' - this piece has been commissioned by the same buyer as the original one. This version is slightly larger than the original and the brief is to get it as close as possible in composition to the original painting. The mark making technique I use is fairly random, so this will be an interesting challenge!
