this was incredibly hard to get a good photo of this, looks so much nicer in person with
magentas, reds, details.  I saw this pashmina folded on a table and it stuck in my mind.

Really enjoy the Suzani influence which actually is from Kazakhstan to name one country in the far eastern part of old Russia.  Being a textile painter try to keep the images accurate but add my own colours.  Same with the Indienne trade cloths with their quite bizarre images.  Hope that you enjoy my work.  It is not political just meant to put a smile on your face and enjoyment of colour.
It seems that work accepted well, that is important, have to put yourself out there.  But the outcome of personal pain is my work today..thanks and enjoy and please feel free to leave a comment.

This painting is on panel and is actually enormous and intense. It is a pashmina bit and fell in love with doing a painting with just a few colours.
Am going into back surgery shortly so trying for the moment to finish up anything that I have that will be too heavy for me. Of course for sale

Honestly it is the hardest thing to paint even familiar things in pain 
Years ago someone told me to paint what I paint best and do a lot of it.  Even with shaking hands and foul temper it was not a good experience but one that it would appear that I must accept.

am so so sorry to report that it is difficult to paint right now.  too many doctors and no results.
pain is a threshold to creativity but this pain is at times just over the top.  will be back soon. actually have 6 paintings done and cannot stand any of them..perhaps I will think about showing you...dunno

Hi there, so sorry to have not entered any new work but have been quite sick with a horrible back etc and with that kinda pain, the paintings were not what I would call ok.  I covered them all except one and will post that.,  Thanks for logging on and when I am better, the work will resume

 I just love this one and it was a pleasure to paint this.
First real work after retiring and retirement is great.
The size is 60 inches x 30 multi-media and would love some input here

Well have finally retired and it just feels great.  I had a grand send off from the staff and management and what a lovely surpise party it was.
Being acknowledged is a good thing...

Thanks to all Montage for their help, friendship, guidance and freedom to do my 'thing'.  Was able to art myself in there and everyone had a blast.

On Thanksgiving this year drew our family on a plastic talecoth and brought along markers for the family to fill in.  What a good time we had.  Everone had a great time and when we were finished...the whole family did this craft, covered it with plastic and used the cloth for a table setting.  
If interested drop me an email larthurs58@gmail
and will be delighted to do a personal cloth for you.
Christmas, Birthdays, a wonderful keepsake at $25/cloth
