sometimes I paint blindfolded.
this is a string of four photographs . Other than being converted to gif format and reduced in size they have not been doctored up or enhanced in any way.
I was having just a little fun.after having been painting for about 11 hours in the Queen Street Mall of Brisbane.
You looking so young.
You are truly a beautiful person...in body and soul.
Painting blind folded....That sounds fun.

yes it is fun and interesting. and doing it in public just the biggest thrill. for them and me. just the look on there facess when i take the blindfold of is incredable the cant beleive what i did right in front of them.
if there are spelling mistakes or gramma errors. and it ofends you i dont care iim dyslexic so its ur problem not mine.
Hey, Nice photos!! Are you a painter by profession? or is it your hobby??
its not a job'
its not a hobby
its a life a way of living. A way of thinking. A way of being.
the art and i are inseprable.
one is nothing without the other.
its creating in the moment and expressing that, weather be thru art, poetry, creative writing, sculpture. grafix anything you do and of cause love.
this is Xiny from China. she was so excited about seeing rainbow, she was dancing around and saying, "quick, quick take photo".
Funny how seeing someone so excited is able to transfer to you and make use of excited as well, that what you end up doing is taking a photo.
Why because we are excited.
here is another shot that was taken in black-and-white.
That is my saxophone.
These are three friends of mine.
I met each one of them while our painting. And got to know them individually.
Then I introduced them to one another. And they have become a best of friends.
There's Aya from Japan, Katie from Australia and Nicky from Korea.
can anyone tell me other than the border around the outside of this photo. what it is that I have done to this photo.
I will post later the info
You are young as long as you feel young.
I think that you have added Aya to the photo..
yes you are right. I Aya to the photo as she was not there at the time so added her later.
this is just outside of where I live. the sun was settinand there was a sun shower at the same time. I enjoyed the way you the warmth travels through to the coolness this is three photos taken in succession and then paste together to give a panorama. Each one has an exposure of about three seconds.
please click on this thumbnail to see it better.
thank you. They are photos that have meaning to me. I like to capture emotion with my photos.
this is a lead drawing I've been working on. For the past four years. I go into the city sit down for a couple hours drawing the bits and pieces here and there. And it allows people to come and talk to me and not feel so intimidated, as I'm more relaxed when I'm doing but thi instead of with the spray can.
this is Shoko and myself in Sydney just after Australia Day celebration.
With the Sydney Opera house just behind.
I was down there with my fellow artist is like a brother.
These three lovely young ladies I enjoyed painting for. and they wanted to take my photo. One of the girls had a 35 mill SLR camera. Which I set up on a tripod. Then I took another picture with my camera which is digital.
Warrn is from Thailand she is a great friend of mine Always bright and happy. And helping people She is now back over Thailand working in a job that is helping others.
Pumped up the saturation? Curves? Some hard light blending modes?
Other than the border and the adding of aya and tweeking her in stauration and matching here to the photo i have not enhanced the main photo it is the original shot on an exposure of about 2 seconds.

Nice photos, thank you for sharing !
The list to choose in the poll is missing for me. Why don't you include HANDSOME as well... that is tickable for me... young, old, ugly, devil, angel are not part of me.. HANDSOME does...
And btw, nice pictures.
I have been painting with spray cans up around 20 years.
I am self-taught I did not learn the techniques of how I paint from anyone.
there are other people who do paint spray cans and they do the waterfall planet and pyramid. Which is done to death all over the world.
anyone can ask me to paint anything they want and I will think within certain limits. As I will not paint drugs , erotic or satanic. As I am not into these things. I love the expression of life. I am a surreal performance artist.
I could have included handsome except I just didn't think of it.
I could have included handsome except I just didn't think of it.
I hope to share more as well and your welcome.
Bob myself and Aya travelled from Brisbane down to Tamworth, for the country music Festival.
We arrived there a couple days earlier to get our footing and make sure positions of both campsite and of where I paint and have the gallery set up.
sitting down in the middle of the street in Tamworth. With the crowd just starting to build.
a family who saw me walking along and just wanted to take a photo with us together.
while in Tamworth something very interesting .
earlier that day there were like a hundred of the rebels bikie gang rode their choppers through the main street of Tamworth.
I was walking back from my campsite to the festival On the way decided to pick up some pizza. Just inside the barriers to keep unofficial cars out of the street.were three Harleys. And two of the rebels bikie gang standing outside the pizza place and two uniformed officers talking to them as I was walking past to go inside the pizza place.
I overheard a conversation. It went something a little like this.
police, "do you have permits to allow bikes to be in here".
rebel, "no we do not have permits."
Police, "see those barriers there they are to stop people that do not have permits to be in here unless your vehicle has a permit it is not to be in here."
Rebel, we did not realise those barriers are meant to keep us out."
I'm just walking in the door into the pizza place to buy a couple pieces of pizza.when I hear-
police, "I will need to see your licence"
inside the pizza place where I just entered was the third rebel member. He had just bought his piece of pizza and were starting to walk out. This guy was huge all three of the members were New Zealanders but the guy walking out was huge. I mean his arms were like tree trucks his arm alone was about the same size as my waist.
As he walks out in a very calm voice without any overtones Just makes a plain statement of,"I do not have a licence."
For a few moments the officer has no response.
And I had just bought my pizza. And there was no other reason for me to be there I did not stay.
in about three minutes or less there were like 60 Federal police surrounding the pizza place. For the next half an hour to an hour.
After which I heard the three bikes riding out the area.
And I thought to myself. Most of anyone else that had been asked for a licence and could not produce the and had told the police that they had not a licence would we have been allowed to start the vehicle and drive it on the road. Having been surrounded by 60 Federal police.
The only people that know that entire story.
The guy that was at the pizza place.
The police involved.
The rebel gang members that were involved.
thats sweet man i keep an eye on ur wedsite for news hope to see u at next foklie
Talk about perfect parking.
Was down in Adelaide at one of the multistoried car parks, went around the back to check my parking results.

Awesome painting job!!!!
http://img105.imagevenue.com/loc24/th_a1d_123_2362.jpg That pictures scared me, not in a bad sort of way though. Also, them pictures remind me of when I was in Australia, the most beautiful place i've ever been. I went to Sydney and stayed at a friends house. Your art is really nice, you should see mine, I can't even draw a stick man without it looking like my little sister has done it!

siting down at a wood ovan pizza place
Your artwork is very inspiring. How'd you get to be so good at it?
Keep the great pics coming!
thank you to call my arts inspiring.
How did I get to be so good, many years of dedication and of passion. I painted up on around 12 hours a day or more and when people are out playing I am painting. When people are out working I am playing.
What sets apart a concert pianist from just a talented hack.
This little ninja sits on the front Dash of the van.
He is one of those little toys that you get from McDonald's.
whenever someone gets in they love this little ninja
I was over at my brother-in-law's place the other night.
These are some shots of my nieces door to her room.

This guy had brought his axe in.
When he came back to pick it up, a few of the others around were envious and he was very proud.
there were a number of people coming up asking for me to paint their axes as well.
This is graffiti on a shed wall in Brisbane. I was out for a walk spotted and took a photo.
