Life. Art. Surfing. That's what it says at the top, but mostly all I've written about, or shown, is surf related stuff. My last foray into art related, with my little assemblage of a couple of months back, was greeted by a deafening silence.

Every so often, I attempt a painting, my efforts punctuated by periods of inactivity as other things, like life, get in the way.

This effort, Trapped, came out of trying something new, doodling a bit, and showing the state of mind I was in at the time. Boxed in by work and just feeling the pressure I suppose.

I was quite happy with it until someone said:

Hey Mick, I really like that painting of the guy with the big nose.

Oh well.

I like it. Very expressive....and not in the guy-with-a-big-nose kind of way.

Life. Art. Surfing. What no music?

Mick, I like the painting, looks like a guy in a barrel. Has an Aboriginal feel to it too. Nice work.
