Butter Me Up

IMG_2406

Introducing my new friend the butternut squash. A stunning vegetable that I have been admiring as one has appeared lately in my fruit bowl.

It has fascinated me for several days with its exquisite curves and woodlike shell. The only sane thing to do was make art of it. It is art in itself but I wanted to be a part of it and now I am.

Inspired also by Woody Allen’s affection for Cezanne’s Apples and Pears as stated in his Masterpiece Manhattan.

Many Are Called

The Call

I found this piece of black wood while doing a beach clean at Shellybanks on the South Wall in Dublin. I was very taken with it so I took it home gave it a wipe and waited for the moment of inspiration. I saw the figure in the wood and brought it out in crayon which I later touched up with acrylic paint.

It is featured in the table selfies post but I wanted to give it its own post because I think it deserves it.

Day 99.

I sense the beginning of a new obsession coming on with this Artist.

You walk through a series of arches, so to speak, and then, presently, at the end of a corridor, a door opens and you see backward through time, and you feel the flow of time, and realize you are only part of a great nameless procession.
