Toilet Humour continued...

Here's some slightly better photos of the toilet door commission. Enjoy...

I like the grainy texture of the timber, it was a good surface to paint on. It also added an aged look, almost like cracking paint, which was all the more befitting of the subject matter...

Painting is a peaceful, cathartic process most of the time. Makes me wonder why I don't paint more often.

Monkey Bouquet

"Peoni's may be out of season, but monkeys are all year round!" is the message on the back of this Valentine's gift for my wife (then fiancee) in 2007. She said she hated it at the time, but it's been on display since, so it can't be that bad.
