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 […]

This is where the magic happens … (and in the shed of course).   2018 has taken a surprising turn. I haven’t done a shed load of paintings for a very long time and I have never done ‘proper’ paintings using acrylic paint before. Some of these will be available to see (and purchase) at […]

PAINTING. Really!!!?!

MY MIND ….. A BLANK CANVAS

My blogging room ……. I mean Lo, the terrible Goddess’s office ….. is getting there. The window is installed ……. …… although it originally arrived with one pane of glass missing and they managed to crack one of the other panes during installation which was a bit of a pain. They popped back a couple […]
