Hopefully the Collins picture will sell in Cork.
Hopefully yeah, before I get too attached to it, which happens rather a lot. It's got just 2 watchers and 2 days left on ebay, but it's quite a specialist subject.

Very grateful for your contributions to the thread, Fr. A man after many of our creative h'arts, I'm sure. The work is quite engaging. Like RM I'm intrigued by the Collins work. There's a lot going on around and within him in the image ~ here and there the Morrígan...

Yes, The Morrigan seemed to possess certain people around that time, Tom Barry and Dan Breen as well.

I thought I'd revive our old thread here, I've been busy working on that occult book commission but did some bits over the past 2 days whilst staying up until about 8/9am.

And a track with a title inspired by that Whippaquick IHTM thread I enjoyed reading.

And a self portrait, oil on canvas,

Thanks guys for all the previous kind comments too.

At the same time made a new lamen for my group,

Inside a starship, watching puny humans from afar
Whilst going through some piles of my old sketches I found this creepy looking pen on paper self portrait from around 2011 :eek:

Very good! Is that called 'horse with no legs'?

And finally this one, which is of a bloke yawning and rolling a fag. Not screaming.

It's not really in black and white, I just wanted to try the setting on the camera.

Much appreciated, oldrover and FrK. I envy those with the ability replicate organic forms so precisely. My efforts always end up looking like engineering schematics.

Actually it's a complex title to match it's theme. It's called 'This bastard painting is slightly too large to fit in the scanner, so you can either have the legs or the head'.

Here's a wonkier, but full length version.

That's superb; great pasterns (it's a particular bugbear of mine; even Stubbs horses have a lot of dodgy pasterns ;) )

Thank you.

I was honestly about to reply, but they're not pasterns they're oil paints. Then I read the rest of the post and Googled it. I'd never heard the term before.

I'm paranoid so there's very little photographic evidence of my existence (apart from the odd photo hereabouts of my cat mauled arm) but I think my most public creative moment was a window display I designed for Madonna's "Erotica" album. I'll leave it to your own creative abilities to imagine what it consisted of (taking into account that I worked for Our Price and our shop was next to a large and prosperous Waitrose, in Witney [where they shoot you if you don't like Labradors and Range Rovers], so it wasn't quite Soho on a Friday night), but for my efforts I was lumbered with being the window dresser who took over from the professional window dressers that we used to have: the ones who told us about Freddie Mercury's terminal condition weeks before it became official (EMI had their post mortem plans in place distressingly, if honestly, early).

I have often thought about going back and seeing if whichever shop is now occupying our old shop has removed the fly that I once accidentally painted into the right hand window frame, but I think my sensitive artistic soul would be devastated if they had indeed removed my personal, low-cost version of a Damien Hirst installation piece.

Possibly I have a photo hiding somewhere of a Rocky Horror themed window display I did for an Oxfam shop cira early 90s (Yes, I really did work in a retro clothing and furniture shop before it was cool), looked crap then :rofl: and the shop has long since been bulldozed.

Nice work on the horses Oldrover... I have no idea when it comes to drawing! Oh, and me having a suspicious nature and all, my first thought was that maybe you couldn't do legs. :oops:

Well, to be honest, the legs on the black one are apparently a little bit off. According to a Cob breeder I once met while at a horse show.

I've sculpted horses' heads a few times, but I've got very little detailed knowledge of what goes on from the neck down. I was always a people painter.

You paint horses!! (I'm observant like that!) They are gorgeous and it seems to me like you capture something of the horse's personality; the black one's a complete cock, totally full of his extraordinary beauty, while the grey is shy and abashed, despite the fact he's quite divine. Breed from the black one, ride the grey. (I'm fairly sure that most of what I just typed is either illegal or offensive. Soz!)

Actually, that's a very nice thing to say, thanks.

I didn't paint horses much, only these two and a bigger double picture. I was almost exclusively people.

Your paintings of people must be extremely, embarrassingly good if they are your only example of horse paintings! I love paintings of horses very much more than other forms of painting, and if I had money that is the area I'd concentrate on (collecting wise). As I have no money, I just go to visit Stubbs' Whistlejacket once a year.

I always pop in to see Whistlejacket when I'm in the National. My favourites are 'Hambletonian, rubbing down', I love the people in it, 'Mares and Foals without a background', the background of which I blatantly ripped off for all my samplers, and his zebra.

Have you come across Ali Bannister? She painted the horses for the film 'Warhorse', as in she physically applied paint to the horses, but she's also a well known equine artist.
