A Thief Stole Paintings From The Louvre

A friend emailed me this recently and – well its delightful so I really had to share it with you…..

A thief in Paris planned to steal some
Paintings from the Louvre


After careful planning, he got
past security,  stole the paintings,
and made it safely to his van.

However, he was captured only two
blocks away when his van ran out of gas

When asked how he could mastermind
such a crime and then make such an
obvious error, he replied, 

‘Monsieur, that is the reason I stole  

the paintings.’


I had no Monet



To buy Degas

 Van Gough


To make the Van Gogh.


See if you have De Gaulle to

send this on to someone else….



I sent it to you because I figured

I had nothing Toulouse.

I thought this was rather clever and I hope it brings a smile to your day, just as it did to mine!

Please share it with your friends and spread some smiles around the world :)

The Dragon And His Mistress

This painting ‘The Dragon And His Mistress’,  is one of those works that seemed like a good idea at the time …… and then you look at it later, scratching your head and saying to yourself – “What was I thinking?”  It is what it is, but sometimes I wonder where these things come from.  Well it did come from a photo of a deep chasm, however it decided to do it’s own thing and become something else!

The colour is extraordinarily intense – perhaps I was just having an ‘intense’ day.  Colour seems to be something that just flows out of me, regardless of what I’m thinking.  It is instinctual, it is spiritual and yes, it is intense – mostly. I find it very difficult to paint wafty, high key, paintings with little tonal difference. An example of which is below in Monet’s painting of Charing Cross Bridge. Don’t get me wrong, Monet’s painting is a wonderful example of a high key painting, it’s just not my thing to paint them.
