This photo of Jesus at the beach is one that Shaughan and I made together. I love being creative with him.
Last night I went to the committee meeting for the Art Society and one of the ladies said you can't work with other people when being creative I had to say that I disagreed with her comment.
Just look at some of the artists that do work together like Mike and Otis, the two guys who do the living sculptures etc.
Like this painting of the Rasta Man, we both think it's cool and have had people want to buy it.
I never have a problem if people want to paint on my paintings as I know that you can always paint over it or make something from what they ave done if I don't like it.
The meeting was great as we got to talk about lots of things and with new committee members it will take off.
I have put my hand up to write the newsletter every quarter which I have been wanting to do for a few years now. Sometimes you just have to wait for the right time!
My message for the day was: If you are in an unfamiliar environment, or anywhere you feel unsafe or dishonored, call upon us for protection, and it will be provided instantly and without question.
Here is another painting that began with lots of people painting it and now I am slowly going to finish it.
Yesterday I was moving my paintings and thinking to myself I have so many half finished paintings and so many finished ones. It's weird but I don't like selling my work which hopefully will change one day. I think it maybe easier if I make a pile of paintings and send them off to someone else to sell.
I have got an auction guy coming next Friday and I'm in two minds about selling the framing gear. It would be nice not to have to drag it all upstairs and to have some money in the bank to play with would be nice. See what happens. I would like to set up my darkroom soon too! So much to do.
Shaughan sold the 4WD yesterday he is loving his hobby of buying and selling vehicles.

This yes painting is a big painting I painted when Shaughan asked me to marry him. It has heaps of words written under the painting, this is something that I do to most of my paintings put hidden messages in them.
