The Wings of Time

A new painting that was difficult to photograph—the black paint, whilst appearing to be matt, tends to be quite reflective. The painting features the Tower of Babel (lower left), an angel (center, representing time) & the world (right).

In the Land of the Fisher King (study)

Here is a new small painting, a study for a theme I've used before (but only in drawings), the Arthurian legend of the Fisher King, the injured king in the land of the Holy Grail. I'm intending to do a larger, more detailed painting of this sometime soon, perhaps.

Ian Watt as Posterkrantz in Cut! / NYC

More from college friend Ian Watt (see a couple of postings below) whom I haven't seen in many many years, but is coming to NYC with his solo show CUT! next month. He has put together a promo video of himself in character as the deranged silent movie director, Posterkrantz, answering a series of questions...the video is below:

Ian Watt in NYC

An old friend of mine that I haven't seen since college days (Edinburgh College of Art 1976-1980) is performing his one-man show, CUT!, at Theatre Row in New York City on October 18 at 2pm. I'm planning on going to see him, as it's been more than 34 years since the last time I saw him & there may be catching up to do. I did my degree in Drawing and Painting & he did his in Interior Design, and in the years since he has become much less of an interior designer and much more of an actor/comedian. In any case, below is the flyer for his show for those who may be interested.

The link for his web site: ianblairwatt.webplus.net

And here is a link for buying tickets: http://www.telecharge.com/FindTickets.aspx?cityName=Off-Broadway&productId=10376&productType=1

Pandora's Isle

This is a new smallish painting on board...I have some work in a group show in a local gallery at the end of this month, & this may be among the grouping of works I'll exhibit.
