Washington Green Painters

My affectionate tribute to some of the Washington Green artists. Here they're all beavering away at their canvases under the benign gaze of their boss, Glyn Washington. Being an artist is such a lonesome business that it's fun to show them all working together...

Building snowmen

Kids making unusual snow sculptures - and some rude ones. Might make a good Christmas card I'm thinking...

Lowry Exhibition

Characters from Lowry's paintings are visiting an exhibition of his pictures and maybe even recognising themselves... and somehow a Lowry dog has got loose in the gallery.

Continuing with the Lowry theme, here's a crowd of his characters queuing up to have their portraits painted...

My tribute to L.S.Lowry: a crowd of Lowrys painting Lowrys. Most of his popular paintings are here, but see how many you recognise. It was quite a challenge to paint his little people even smaller so I had to go out and buy a minute brush for this. Hope to show this when I have my exhibition in Salford Art Gallery next summer.

Painting Nudes

Following on from the other painters painting pictures here's my view of art history reduced to a bunch of old blokes painting pictures of nude women. It gives me great pleasure to reproduce all these masterpieces of western art as ugly little blobs of paint - but how many can you recognise...?
