Detail ….

Left top corner of a poster I created …. The poster itself (the one with all those eyes) I published a few days ago in this blog. Some Facebook followers (Abstract Photography) mentioned that (some of) the eyes look ‘disgusting’, ‘creepy’, etc.  Love that!!! 😉

The Wall Painter

Roger Williams from Cape Town is well known around the globe with many international accolades. In South Africa he is just ‘known’ …….. here and there.

Last weekend I witnessed Roger and his assistant Nick here in the village engaged in a wall painting. Not finished yet (see last picture) but you can see the finished wall from October onwards when tasting wine in the new tasting room in a winery/restaurant (name is mentioned in the last image). As you can see the ghost comes out of the bottle.

Looking back

One of my first ‘imaginaries’ was created in the period I was still exploring the basics of Photoshop. This morning I tried to alter it a bit but I’m not very satisfied with the color versions. Personally I prefer the B&W. The thumbnail at the bottom is the original of September last year.

Imaginary wood painting 1

All images are perishable but “everything you can imagine is real” (Pablo Picasso). These imaginaries are real as my imagination is but both are perishable.

This first imaginary wood painting -out of a serie of 5- is the entrance of the estate of Robert Stanford (after whom our village is named) as how it might have looked 150 years or so ago.

Imaginary Street Art 10

Some name it murals most others say it’s graffiti and there are also people who call it street art.

Paintings are perishable and so are wall paintings, graffiti, murals etc. I’m not a painter but I can photoshop a little bit hence my Imaginary Street Art (or is it ‘Imaginary Murals’ etc.?).

I don’t have any illusions; even my imagination is perishable.

This is the last of the imaginaries out of a serie of 10.
