Painting the Light.

Edging my way through the labyrinth,
I bumble-stumble, ever closer to my goal.
At times weary and distraught, I move on.

Onwards and upwards towards the light.
That light, so blinding, it masks the way,
but through elimination I shall prevail.

Never will I forgo of sweetest hope,
for the way there is as rewarding…
as the prize itself, to paint that light!

Marvellous Wood Sculpture.

Don’t You Hate it When…


10517486_564715086970694_6981168338066476226_n

Those of you who know me will know me for an artist. Whether I’m any good, I’ll leave in the middle, but I am most deaf!initely an artist! This is how I define myself. I’ll keep on making art till I die and it makes no never mind if I ever get to be famous and/or successful. (Although it would be nice, of course…)

At the minute I happen to work as an administrative clerk for a social housing project, cause it pays the rent, as you do. When people ask me what I do, I tell them I’m an oil painter and a writer, but I’m working in administration. Once every too often, someone will say: “Painting, hunhh, now that’s a fine hobby!”

Regardless of the fact that I would dearly like to strangle them, I have stopped replying to this insult. But… don’t you just effin’ hate it when that happens!?

Thank you for taking the time to read my little rant. Don’t let it spoil your day and happy art-making, yawl!

There Can Be Only ONE Rembrandt!


From jameselkins.com:

what-painting-is-5
Art historians tend to see Rembrandt’s method as an attempt at naturalism, but it goes much farther than portrait conventions have ever gone, then or since. Consider what is happening in the paint, aside from the fact that it is supposed to be skin. Paint is a viscous substance, already kin to sweat and fat, and here it represents itself: skin as paint or paint as skin, either way. It’s a self-portrait of the painter, but it is also a self-portrait of paint. The oils are out in force, like the uliginous oozing waters of a swamp bottom. The paint is oily, greasy, and waxy all at once — even though modern chemistry would say that is impossible. It sticks: it is tacky and viscid like flypaper. It has the pull and suction of pine sap.

Over the far cheek, it spreads like the mucilage schoolchildren use to glue paper, resisting and rolling back. On the nose — it’s rude, but appropriate — the paint is semi–solid, as if the nose were smeared with phlegm or mucus. On the forehead, it looks curdled, like gelatin that is broken up with a spoon as it is about to set. There is drier paint around the eyes, and the bags under the eyes are inspissated hunks of paint, troweled over thin, greyish underpainting. The grey, which is left naked at the corner of the eye and in the folds between the bags, is the imprimatura, and the skin over it is heavy, thick, and clammy. The same technique served for the wings of the nose, where dribbles of paint come down to meet the nostril but stop short, leaving a gap where the grey shows through. Of course the nostril is not a hole, but a plug of Burnt Sienna with Lamp Black, and it also lies on top of the grey imprimatura. Rembrandt’s thin mustache is painted with wiggles of buttery paint, almost like milk clinging to a real mustache.

¡Cáspita! A Van Gogh painting that went missing almost 40 years ago seems to have been found. During an operation to seize the property of tax offenders, Spanish inspectors discovered the canvas, entitled “Cypress, Sky and Country” (1889), in a safety deposit box. Stay tuned for confirmation from Spain’s Culture Ministry…

Reminding You of Ralphie’s Art.


Some of you might not have noticed that at the top of Ralphie’s Portal on the right-hand side there is a link to my very own art-site, where I show my recently painted oil paintings and photographs taken. Just to give you an example, here’s a portrait of two English bulldogs that I finished only the day before yesterday:
