This is my new painting Event Horizon based on a black hole. I have been reading Stephen hawking’s book, Black holes and baby universes, this painting is inspired by it, although some of it makes for difficult reading.
I have finished my painting of one of my favourite actors, Eric Sykes, using motifs which are reminiscent of childhood stories. This painting is from my series Icons of childhood. The wording there is a season is from the Byrds song Turn! Turn!Turn! (To everything there is a season) which reminds me of Eric when I hear it.
I have been putting the finishing touches to my Che Guevara painting: What lies beneath. I initially painted Che, but wanted to camouflage him so he almost disappeared into the background. I have been reading the Cuban and Bolivian diaries which are fascinating reading. All I have to do is put a few coats of varnish on to finish.
