Legends from our own lunchtimes

What a strange new batch of demons I've been battling!  Until now, painting has been a rare activity in our household with the results only to be seen by consenting adults in private, so actually contemplating a series with the intention of not only allowing strangers to see them, but heaven forbid pass comment or even take one home brings with it a level of insecurity which would make a terrorist proud.

Despite all of that, I've called this one finished so to preempt  all those questions that I so dread:

It's called "Tie Dye"
Yes it is bright and no it won't match your regency curtains.
No it won't fit in your flat, it's 1500 mm square, which means he's a LOT taller than Julie.
Yes it did take a few weeks, but watching me kept the grand dog entertained while I was supposed to be minding him.

Now for whole weekend away from the brushes. Oh that's right, off to the big smoke again to tile a certain new family room before the new family arrives.

That's impressive. Talented devil aren't you.

Ta Ann. I'll post some properly colour balanced shots next week if I can work out when to take them.

Great stuff. I do so want to see them in all their huge glory.

I like it. It's a little bit Banksy. I'm not sure now if you're going to count that as a compliment or an insult. I'd like to see some more, please.

Funny you should say that Cara, it's a style I played with more than thirty years ago for screen printing, and I struggled with the "Banksyesque" nature of it for a few years before just getting on with the job.

Some are more obviously in a similar style, some are less, but next year's batch will move a little further.
