I woke this morn and thought yes indeed Pat's right, a whale it'll be...

I hope that's not a harpoon in that chap's hand then. :)

The whale's eye looks familiar.

These paintings... I love them. The colors... the vibe... the staircases...

I do seem somewhat staircase obsessed Lawler :wink: - a lot of up-and-down-stairs travel every day may
account for it...

This was where things got a bit dodgy before with the whale before it turned into yellow sub -
and even funnier now I think about it, that your whale was what I took for a rock.

You'll be aware of ancient tales where seafarers land on what they think is an island... which then starts
swimming off. First of all I painted a whale - then my little joke was to put a man on the whale's back as
if he seen an island, rowed out to it, then up comes the whale rising higher out of the water -

then realized it could be misconstrued as a whale-hunt situation... not a joke. By that stage I had the little
man, and his boat, which I rather liked so didn't want to scrape out, so I tried the domesticated-whale transport
notion for a few months, eventually deciding that was still a bit dodgy... yellow sub.

So no harpoon - but it was supposed to be a spoon as oar (I find spoons amusing :? ) until yesterday I thought
best make it even more oar-like for that very not-to-be-confused-with-a harpoon reason.

Worse than that - a possible opportunity to exhibit the whole thing landed on my doorstep this morning so
I've got to try and finish this off + the 5th section, to get digital images to a selection board by the end
of next week :chaud:

Glad I didn't hear about it sooner or I'd not have been here this week finding helpful suggestions :merci:

I'm currently working on section D, which is designed to sit on whichever side of B+A+C we wish.
I took bad quality photos of it all upon my easel yesterday......

Exciting that you might be exhibiting.

I love the way that D can fit either side so that the whole can form a closed loop. However unless your easel is massive I wonder if the gallery space might be a little claustrophobic. Alternatively it could be a gallery for the little folk who inhabit your "New Hazel back guitar" thread and it that case the gallery should surely have many crossing stairways.

How do I tune my RNA, by talking like a pirate? (see what I did there?)

Like a Canadian pirate: Arrr 'n eh...eh?

You've set the scene for 'the changing room iii' :okok: - I was awaiting for inspiration for that one :cafe:

Well done! The whole shebang put into one little character.

My co-workers wish that I was on a desert island when I make puns...what do they know? Yours is a visual pun. Clever.

By the way, yesterday I noticed that a little island out in S.F bay looks just like your whale. Maybe it will turn tail and swim away!

Quick work Martin! Now I'm almost afraid to make any off hand comments. Your paintings are really good. Obviously you are quick to take inspiration and are happy to let things change and develop on a (s)whim.

Oh wait whimsical is a good descriptor for your sensibility, I think.

I don't know why, but numerous eggs appeared in the scene last week :o

The handing in, all framed, for next selection-hurdle is approaching fast so this really must be declared finished tomorrow
and varnished to be ready in time :chaud:

I love the lake in the treetop Martin and the egg mountains behind it. Wasn't sure about the fan windmill but it's growing on me. The whole is fantastic.

Good luck with the selection process. Keep us briefed please.

Started off as a reasonably proper windmill...

I dunno, that area could possibly do with something more within the enclosure - tomorrow morn will see a decision -

meanwhile section E turned out to be concerned with coastal defence... n.b. would-be-marauding vikings are in
reverse gear -

- more steps for lawler :wink:
