I've Had a Seechange


Hey guys, remember me? Some might recall my jocular posting, "My New Oilympus"
Well I'm here to tell you that after some initial flops my current work is progressing nicely.
It's an oil painting based upon my shot of a buckjumper in, Rodeo (image No.2), quite a complex
picture which of course I've had to 'translate' from the language of photography into that of painting.
I paint daily in 5hr sessions, 11AM-4PM, today I completed session 4 with probably two more sessions to complete it.
Certainly a huge change from photography in which I've become totally immersed, even more so than I was in my early days.

When it's done I'll 'unveil' it here in the Lounge for auction.
Ladies and gentlemen, bidding will begin at 2000, do I hear a bid, a bid, a bid? yes YOU sir! SOLD

Good to here things are going smoothly, Mark, looking forward to the unveiling.

By the by, it's David, not Andrew ( He is really my brother )

No, Internaut is Jason. Beagletorque is Andrew.

Good luck with your painting, Pablo!
