As well as trying to get to grips with my cigar box guitar during this time of great change, I have dusted off my oil paints and given them another outing. Since I started in 1997, virtually every painting I’ve done has been an experiment in trying to find the perfect technique to create the perfect end-product. I’ve tried acrylics and gouache too, but they just don’t seem to do it in the same way that oils do; they simply don’t capture the vividness of the colours.
This painting I did today is probably the closest I’ve ever got to achieving my artistic goal. As you would expect, the photo does not do it justice; there is so much incredible detail that has to be seen close-up. However, I’m really pleased with it and thought I would share it with you all.
Stay safe and happy!
Hi people. I thought it was time I communicated with an update of what “stuff” is going on. Firstly, my latest book, The Road To Nowhere. I had some real tech nightmares with formatting, which I thought I’d solved. As a result I added a temporary cover, which enabled me to order a couple of proof copies for the purpose of checking the interior. To my horror the problems had returned and I was unable to resolve them. So, I decided that I would download a fresh template and format the file again from scratch. I’m in the process of doing this now and I expect to be finished very soon. So watch this space!
I’ve also been painting again, and my latest piece is shown below. As ever, the photo doesn’t do it justice. I really like it; it looks fantastic “in the flesh.”
There is also the little matter of the latest edition to my family, namely my four-string box guitar; which is based on the classic cigar-box guitar. There’s another pic below for you to feast your eyes on. Isn’t she a beauty?
Finally, here’s a little video for your amusement. Ladeez an’ gennelmen, I give to you Seasick Rich…
