OPEN STUDIOS 2019 – REVIEW

  I made the cover of Vague – the pullout supplement from the Hastings Absurder. Below is the article itself.          ‘If you can only find time to visit one open studio during the Coastal Currents hunting season, avoid Daddy Papersurfer’s Shed like the plague. I made the mistake of visiting last […]

OPEN STUDIO 2019 – HURRAH!

I have never put on a show of paintings in my life … and I’m VERY old now. The shed extension has been built in time and everything is organised … just about. The dates are the weekends of August 31st/September 1st and the 7/8th of September – open 11am until 6pm. Click on the […]

SOON TO BE ANNOUNCED

I shall be announcing something soon. Thank you. (Art Show in Hastings area)

THE BREXIT IMPASSE …

… excuse my French.     People on all sides are unhappy. Something has to be done. My suggestions are – 1 – Revoke article 50 for 2 years and continue being an EU member and having British MEPs. 2 – After 2 years hold another referendum asking exactly the same question as last time […]

INTERVIEW WITH CHANNEL 5 ART’S CORRESPONDENT 

  “What inspires you Daddy Papersurfer?” “Anything.” “Anything?” “Yes. Anything in real life, printed, on social media, anything that you can smell or touch or listen to – anything.” “Anything you can smell!!!?!” “Indeed although I’d rather keep those sources to myself.” “Thank you for that. Anyway, tell me about this painting.” “Well, it all […]

THE CASE FOR THE DEFENCE.

    “Well Mr Daddy Papersurfer, what have you got to say in your defence?” I rose unsteadily to my feet. “Your honour, members of the jury, my loyal fans in the gallery, I realise that the photographic evidence found on my iPhone by the police appears to be damning. Let me explain. A mosquito […]

ANOTHER …

… of my own things.     ‘April’ – the month when nature winds itself up. Acrylic on MDF.
