Yep, I agree BB. How can we talk Gardening when its this cold. Photos are wonderful and we can enjoy them all on GOY

11 Feb, 2009

 

well you have a natural flair id say.perhaps you should look more seriously at your photography.im not a bad photogapher i dont think and credit wear its due i say.i know what you mean dawn just another month to go ish lol

11 Feb, 2009

 

Given your skills Np with your sculptures and artwork,you deserve more suces commercially,but is that what drives you,and if it were a full time business,could you churn it out on customer demand ? Think it might take a lot of the pleasure out of it.!

11 Feb, 2009

 

i think so .sculptures bye nature will be different but if people wanted the same thing then i would make a mould.the amount of people who wanted a green man.im no good at repeats lol

11 Feb, 2009

 

Aye when i think of the unmade bed , the pile of bricks , a dead cow in a tank and the woman who displayed 22 dirty nappies from her newborn child as art have you thought you might be too skilled ?

Try dumping your household waste in the gallery and convince those attending its a statement about our throw away society ? lol

11 Feb, 2009

 

very good bonkers its a funny old world.ive sean tea bags and a french bloke who ate different food for shall i say different colours.its called snobbery.the world isnt ready for a heavily tattood man who is good at some thing.surly thats not possible lol . ive had people blatently arguing with me that i didnt draw that.i answer who did then and why have i got all these pictures on a council estate.that stumps them but im sure they dont believe me.some people just cant handle the truthe i dont think.i sore a set up to which goes to show what these critics actualy know. they got a top art gallery and put a brush in an elephants trunk and it splashed away.you should of sean these people on opening day walking round reading all sorts of rubbish into these pictures.do remember a tail of the emperer wears no clothes.same sort of thing i believe

12 Feb, 2009

 

Well dont get too disheartened NP , Bruce Oldfield the fashion designer was a Barnardos boy Alan Ayckbourn .Alan Bennett the playwrights and David Hockney all from humble beginnings.

Of course your quite right people should be able to judge your art on its own merits - perhaps you need to invent a tale to satisfy these people not change yourself but play them at their own game ?

Invent a few Romanian gypsy ancestors tell of stories how you were standed in the Australian outback and Aborigines taught you - the Americans have a great expression called blowing smoke up someones a**e sort of thing that impresses the people you need to sell to ! lol

Whatever you decide its great work and deserves wider recognition.

12 Feb, 2009

 

thanx so much bonkers.im going to sell them my tattoos ,everything if there is something i am me.ive lived a lye before .they can like it or lump it.very good idea bye the way lol you should see the snobs when they bend down and look to see it sais nosey .i chuckle to myself.what you see is what you get.i should of signed it what you looking at lol
