Flooded Studio :-((

Brisbane's average rainfall is around 1200 mm. a year. We received 106mm of that rain in the last 24 hours, and a good portion of that is in my studio! Talk about suffering for my art. I had my housemates steel capped work boots on to paint in today. I started to mop up, but that bucket is a killer for my back. See how the water runs out the front door? I am trying to talk my housemate into going down there and mopping for me. Don't like my chances. It is every man for himself in this house..

There is plenty more rain to come. Right up until Friday..

On the Bay

16" x 12" acrylic on canvas. What do you think, is it too stark? There were two yachts in the reference photo, and I was thinking of adding one of them, but I am not sure ?


This is a blue-black and white, 8X10" acrylic on canvas. I showed it to my wife today as I finished it and she hated it so much, she took it to her office tonite to hang. Now I am current agian. Next? :-}
