Anyone remember MASH? This is my take on the Bell 47 helicopter :D

My biggest painting so far. He’s going up to Sydney for ‘22’ – a group show of female artists at the National Grid in Brookvale. Show opens on the 18th of June and I’ll be going up for it…do come along if you’re in the area!

Watercolour, ink and pastel on canvas. Some little stencils too.

Visit me on facebook:

A collection of curious beasts of the sea, air, land and subconscious; painted and drawn with airbrush, dip pen and stained fingers, lovingly embellished with iridescent pigments and metal leaf.

    The them song to MASH actually had words to it. It was called ‘Suicide is Painless’.

    I love the chopper!

  • Thanks! I really can’t imagine it with lyrics…I remember it was the show on just before tea time when I was a kid. And Hawkeye looked a bit like my dad in the 70s :)

    Oh my god, a real slap on the forehead one! Fantastic, why didn’t I think of that?
    Why didn’t anybody? Well done, you’re the first.
    And its all analog too, I love that, he must be spectacular in person. i could go on about it all night about the technical skill but I have to go to sleep, its been a long day

  • Haha, cheers. It looks crappy all small like that. It’s over 80cm wide (which is humongous for me)…so I put detail images on the side there.

    This is one of the greatest thing ever! I see what you meant now about your approach to this piece for the group show, definitely can’t see there being anything remotely similar to this :-)

  • Cheers :) No pink at all…not even a little bit!
