Thanks to everyone who took advantage of my December drawing and painting sale. Itâ€™s nice to have those artworks find a good home. Here’s a revised PDF with the remaining works for sale. If you make a last minute holiday purchase, I can still get the package to you before Christmas (Probably. I canâ€™t guarantee Canada Postâ€™s work). $25 shipping gets you Expedited shipping in Canada and the US on the small works. Large paintings shipping costs to be determined.
German author GÃ¼nter Grass died this week. I’ve read his novel The Tin Drum a couple of times – 20th century history through grotesque allegory is one of my favourite things. (Other great examples of this kind of writing: Irish author J. G. Farrell’s Troubles and Russian author Mikhail Bulgakov’s The Master and Margarita.)
I did a couple of The Tin Drum-themed paintings in 2004, and thought I’d post them today.
Oskar Matzerath, Rob Elliott. acrylic on canvas, 4″x6″, 2004.
