A few more figures in the foreground
I've been working a bit more on this - it would make a good set for Attack on the 50 Metre Woman
Very windy today as I was working on this, so I left earlier than I'd wanted
There's some paint on most of the canvas now, but still a lot more to do
new cores are going up at the front of the Central Park site where the Kent brewery was so I'd better not dawdle on this piece

We're going to have exhibition at Roughies like Rough Art, which I helped Grace and Tamara organise last year. With maybe Grace organising. So that's exciting. I'll post dates around when they are arranged
Tina Cheong at work - She had to go before I could finish, she's disabled and a driver brings her in and then takes her back home. There are a few of her paintings hanging at the Buzz cafe in Newtown(formerly Buzzzbar)

I started this painting in August but then got a couple of nasty colds in a row so I didn't get out on the st to work on it until yesterday - all the plane trees in foreground are sprouting their leaves, and the picture has become a sort of winter-spring time lapse

I'll keep working over this a bit more
Brash Ice is rubble and slush from disintegrating ice floes. There is a lot of it this arctic melt season as a warmer ocean is stirred up by storms and ice melts from beneath. Before it disappears the slush gets washed around into fantastic chaotic patterns by currents and eddies.
I've just started this little painting, I'll add more images above as I finish it

! The Athenian society of the Pericles era was not far from the decadent style of our own western dream reality !
The Parthenon marbles survive in pieces stored in the British Meuseum , saved from the Ottoman barbarism or enslaved for profit - Opinionrs differ
They may had Not survived if it wasn't for Elgin 's extreme zeal for antiguites market , that destroyed him at the end .
Or , they could still be there aged gracefully with the rest of Acropolis
Point is that Now they are where they are and the chance is given to Return to their original environment .
A new state of the art enclosure of the whole area has been in place since late 90s with a new Meuseum and there is No excuse about the well being of the marbles anymore finding any grounds in the global mind
The pyramids of Giza belongs in Giza
