Yes, before you say it … it is strange! :-)

To be candid though, I’ll never cease to be amazed at its reception, as I didn’t spend too much time on it and even kept it out of my portfolio for ages as I thought it was sub-standard.

I continued this theme and did two more paintings:


I am a retired man who enjoys expressing himself in pencils and paints. I have had two solo exhibitions in my home town and I love Redbubble. I get as much pleasure from viewing the works of other artists as from creating my own.

    Thanks Terry & Penny. I did this eight years ago and I can see loads of faults in it, but who cares :-) I mentioned to Penny that producing a painting must be like giving birth. To continue the analogy, however bad our paintings may be we still love them. Having said that, I have torn a few up in disgust, but I try not to make a habit of it.

    Hi Dave, brilliant concept…love it! You might be seeing faults but I’m just looking at the overall picture and see it as amazing;)

    I am bowled over by your comments … you are all very kind. if the people in my home town are as kind as you, my first little solo exhibition next year should go well. So many people comment on artwork with “very nice, but …”and then a lengthy critique follows. You guys are really nice.

    I love this idea, so wish I’d thought of it! :) Love the way your work makes me use my brains (what’s left of them at any rate).

    This is very clever! Have you considered book illustration, even for magazines?

    Thanks for your support. I added you to my watchlist, I just worked out how to do it!

    Thanks Jackie. My wife has been suggesting for years i do illustrating. As my pictures are all small (A4) you may have a point. I once had three or four of my pen and inks in magazines locally and I got a thrill from it. My original interest in art was inspired by the illustrations of Aubrey Beardsley, whose original drawings I once had the privilege of holding in my hands at the V & A, London.
