Running man



OK, I haven't sold any of my wooden sculptures and before you hammer me with 'that's not a reason for making art' (yes you, my sole blogger friend hiding behind your mothers' skirts!) I ain't got no room left in da workshop. So maybe I will take the 'wooden' (I've just realised how bad that sounds) out of sculpture and throw some colour on them. Soulmate Billie has made a start above transforming my running man from a swastika to...well...a funrunningmanfunrunningmanfun...sigh, now I've got to think up colour combinations, being a failed artist is not easy!!

Cosmic...thanks, it's yours. I'll bring it as hand luggage when I come to Australia.
I'm amazed at how colour changes perception. Well maybe not, don't we 'colour' things all the time?

Fucoid....I blush and enjoy Malevichs' running man. I agree it's feeling we want to portray in art but the language is difficult. As soon as we make a mark it is objectified. I am proud of the craftmanship of my sculptures but in the end that is all some people see. By covering up the skill with colour they might 'see' the feeling more.
