Sunday musings

stamp 2

I’ve been experimenting with my pictures again. I made this one sepia and gave it a perforated edge like stamp. Artistic? I think it’s better than some art I see that looks like a pile of bricks or paint thrown at a canvas. Ordinary people with their feet on the ground would want a picture like this on their wall, rather than the work of some over-rated artist who pickles sheep in formaldehyde.

Whats it like to live in Wednesbury?

DSC_1858

What’s it like to live in Wednesbury? This is a question I’m asked quite a lot. People overseas think it’s great because they see photographs like the one above. That’s the canal on the west side of town from me running through an industrial estate. That bridge goes across to Moorcroft Wood. There was a teddy bear’s picnic for the kids in Moorcroft Wood this week. (more…)

Black Country Art review

a bridge

I’ve come to the end of my art week and so I thought I would start today with an artistic edit. You never know, pictures like this might be displayed in the art gallery one day. We could launch a whole new school of art from here in the Black Country. We could call it, “Flyin’ Pigs”. We could do worse…

Starting your own art collection

Spring flowers 2013 063

Continuing the art week theme. Why not start your own art collection? On a budget of course! All you need to begin, is an A4 picture frame from Poundland and a picture to put in it. Art is about acceptance and so any picture that you like and accept is suitable. Then you can hang it on the wall anywhere you like.
