Electro-drawings animated

Another kind of Art have intruded my headspace recently .
On my quest to find a languages for the ever ongoing never ending saga of the Elgin To Parthenon Marbles , I stumbled on interesting technology introduced by precious spirits on human form of friends. 
    The colours the canvas the wood and all the physical 3D means of expression can Never be substituted by digital , lost in the air , 2D imagery 
The smells , the touch,the depth , the feel cannot even be compared as is Not there 
   But   As electric beings humanity now explores this medium to do her Rock paintings. 
Another part of ourselves, our electrical essence gets synchronised with mama Earth n papa Uni and stimulates the soul to manifest new tools , for the new fields of action that consciousness is Now playing out her old classic repetitive dramas among the same old classic Archetypes with different but similar outcomes .
Ever new languages to say or Not say the same things again n again and revisit same issues explored under ever changing points of view in ever changing grounds . 
The archaeologists of the future they might be digging into mountains of Data  hidden , forgotten , lost ecc into the inumerable light particles running thru the corridors of softwRe to software info exchanges , waiting to be translated in ones and zeros ...

Geranium at Mum's

A little geranium in a pot I started a painting of last Christmas when I was here, so I pulled it out again to finish. The pot's in the same pacde but after a year its a bit different shape, so I'll improvise my way

Kids ... in... Space ...

Lucy and Josh just moved into their new house with their parents. It has a covered back porch which functions as Houston Mission Control when the kids venture down the steps out into the yard and outer space.

I knew I had to paint this when I saw (grandpa) Space Agent Poppy's space helmet made from a Coopers 12 stubby case lined with aluminium foil. To make your tinfoil hat you can get your box at Aldi - they fit an adult head very well.

I just have to finish of Lucy and Josh's faces a bit and their spacecraft maybe, and add some stars in the sky

Henry got out and flew off a month or sp ago, so we all hope he's enjoying the nectar in the trees

He or she is a very handsome fellow

Here's another image of Henry
