After Arte Viva 2008

Sold all my chameleons and have an order for two more!

I also won a few weeks of gallery space at the museum, that was a bonus!

Unfortunately my computer is down at the moment and I am using a public one today. Don't know how long I shall be without a computer, but I am doing my best to remedy the situation.

Chameleons















I made these little critters, they took a while but they are worth it. I started out using electrical wire and then I moved on to beads. I will be selling them in the
Arte Viva fair this year in São Brás.

South America


This one is also a favourite, I really enjoyed painting it too.

Middle East, Iraque, Iran etc.


This was prety much inspired by the Gulf War. I tend to get inspiration from disasters for some reason. I quite like the colours in this painting.




Never Ending War

Italy


The Boot.


I did want to make this more controversial, but I just really got into painting it and I forgot about politics...

The boot itself is the shroud of Turin

Tree of Life

The full title is actually...


'If men do these things when the tree is green...what will he do when it is dry?'

Europe and Tibet

Yesterday I forgot to mention Europe and Tibet.

Europe is not one of my favourites, I don't really like the colours. There is a "Religion Coctail" near Italy. This represents how people tend to mix religions these days and the crucified Mary represents the erroneous worshipping of The Virgin Mary.

Man evolving back into a monkey I first did the the Africa picture. I like that.

Tibet is from the imagination.

About these pics

The USA was a copy of a very old picture I sold years ago. I had to experiment more with colours. (My original maps were in black and white, pencil)

The India picture was painted after the tsunami in Asia. The little girl at the bottom holds an expression of fear because of what she saw.

The "Prato Preferido do Bush Bush" Picture only really translates in Portuguese. It's actual title is "Armas de Destruição em Massa" Otherwise known as "Bush's favourite dish".

Africa was my favourite. I sold it last year.

The colage of the USA "Mad in America" was inspired by the Twin Tower disaster. I later added the huricane Katrina.

I have more to display here. When the computer starts behaving itself I will be able to down load them!!
