The Pale Blue Dot painting on Wednesday 19th July, 2017. How was it for you?
From my parody and pastiche series, an original oil painting that depicts an alternative view of the Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho. Could I really be sharing my Achilles heel with the whole world? A fear of showers, a fear of spiders or none of the above?
The Pale Blue Dot – July 6th 2017
The pale blue dot spins on, blissfully unaware of its fate and that of its inhabitants.
Trees: One of the the longest living species on planet Earth. So here, I pay homage to the humble tree. We watch them change every year. Without manmade time pieces we would know roughly what time of year it is. Fascinating things trees.
“Lunch is for wimps” Theses are the words uttered by the ruthless Gordon Gekko played by Michael Douglas in Oliver Stone’s 1987 film, Wall Street. This is the first time we meet Gekko as we are thrust into the cutthroat world of stocks, shares, and copious amounts of city money. Fast forward to present time and I cannot imagine it is any different. Nowadays, however, those who practice Intermittent Fasting would no doubt disagree with the “lunch is for wimps” philosophy as would Muslims who are following Ramadan.
It Could Be Worse depicts a lone orange tent in arctic surroundings.
The size of the oil painting is 21 x 27.9 cm and is painted in oil on a textured MDF board.
Like many of my smaller paintings, the final painting was not necessarily the first intention.
Storm Chased Cows is a spontanious oil painting that plays on a small scene from the movie Twister where a dairy cow is seen whirling around uncontrollabley in the midst of a Midwest tornado. The Storm Chased Cows painting plays on an imagining of the scene before the tornado hits.
