Well, painting outside is certainly not as much fun as it was even just a few weeks ago. It’s cold, the light is bad to begin with and fades very quickly and paint takes ages to dry. Bah humbug. Today’s piece is based on a photo taken in much warmer climes however. The beautiful Islas Mujeres in sunny Mexico to be precise. We decided we’d work with that and then try to get a bit weird. After a few false starts The White Crown is the final result and I’m quite happy with how it all turned out. What entirely it all means is difficult to fathom but sometimes you just have to let the Muse take you wherever it is you’re going. At least we got there in the end.

I was thinking about the oil spill on Mexico’s Gulf Coast and thought I’d do something a little closer to home to commemorate BP’s involvement in the whole affair. I had a little trouble getting my ‘pipe’ to stick to the wall and had to go back a couple of times to ensure that it wouldn’t fall off. Not to worry though as the oil I used was wallpaper paste and acrylic so it won’t seriously damage anything…
