Happy birthdays to my delightful wife and child this month.
Thinking about Bathus this week, this is his 1936 portrait of Andre Derain and a lady who's name is not mentioned.
Love the colours in this Thomas Ruff portrait.

It's time, its time (cougar at the half-moon), oil on linen 2015

I'll have some new drawings and paintings hanging in the hotel room with Darren Knight Gallery at the Spring 1883 fair at Sydney's Establishment hotel.
9-12th September.

The Half moon is a local pub in Brighton where usually over 40 year olds try giving love a whirl. There comes a time in your 30's where time starts slipping through your fingers to make moves on the family front or risk being 75 at your childs 18th. Hence the eggs are very visible. But the title 'Its time, its time has a much broader meaning i.e. its definitely time for change as the sun goes up and comes down we are generally making a mess of things.
