New Hopper

After a very long christmas holiday, I've finally got back to some painting... My dad, a very keen photographer, has been scanning in lots of old slides from the 70s and 80s which are really fun and nostalgic. I'm kind of trying to blend the photographic images with my memory to capture that feeling of childhood. That's as descriptive or explanatory as I'm going to get. I generally hate artists' statements about their work...

This one is called New Hopper. It's 24 x 30 cm, oil on board. Next I'm going to have some fun with a huge stick of candy floss....
