Happy Father’s Day.
I thought my image of Seurat needed a little something. My solution was to add a number of “Wonder Bread” dots, which float above and around the jar. I hope Georges would approve.
Today’s post is an etching from a number of years ago. It’s based on an archival family photo.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!! The image for today’s post is of an etching of my mom. She was born in Ireland and immigrated to Canada when she was nine. Though she never made much of a fuss about the 17th of March, it’s still a good day to remember my favorite Irish lady.
Today’s post is from an old exercise where you paint a portion of a painting trying to be true to the original, and then do another version where you use subjective colour. Vinnie would understand.
My 10 year old self – not exactly J.B.
Today’s painting is another version of a Van Gogh self-portrait preserved in a Mason jar. The original portrait is magnificent and is on display at Musée d’Orsay. If you’re a fan of Mr. Van Gogh you should try to see the movie “Loving Vincent”, it’s well worth a view.
