dready s studio hang ...



                  hanging the dready gallery at picture this studios, camana bay, cayman

natalie said 'they call this a studio hang', which given its location, in the picture this studios, in cayman, is a name 'befitting' ...

so that's it that's the news there's now a whole gallery of art dedicated just to dready-ness ... it's not dready's gallery, it's a gallery of dreadyness.

studio hang ... so we gathered, the owners of picture this, the managers, glenn who is responsible for the printing and stretching of all the art (he's so meticulous and careful), pam, david who came to give good solid advise on colour and mix and space and spacing, natalie passed through, simon said turn everything over so you can see it all, which we did; tanya who came to oversee ...

a permanent exhibition and sales space, not a show space, but a dready art shop ...

wow ...

cool ...

dready s on the beach



                        dready 'twirling on the beach' - original commission - 24x26

mixing the real with the imagined, building a scene, if you will, that grows out of your head in stages ...

you photograph a real seagrape tree on a beach, not this beach, and decide that it'll be the sort of focal point of what you're going to show ...

then you look for the personalities in the people and try to make that find its way into the drawing and so it goes, you add a beach hut, but just the edge of it, you add a palm leaf, a boat you add seme birds
...

dready art's pelican ...



                       dready art 'pelican' - 12x12 - image

pelicans have this kind of cool-cute-clumsy thing going on ... we used to watch for them returning to south sound, three of them that seemed to winter around here; we would call each other when we saw them ... 'the pelicans are back'

but this particular pelican here, along with the land rover below, is kinda emblematic of a summer spent in Jamaica ... emblematic of the memories and the places and the trips and the vibes and the people and t'ings.

when I look at either image I will remember the moments ... and that's nice

peace and love ...

dready art's two dogs waiting



                dready art's 'two dogs waiting' - 62x48 - original commission on canvas

you play with perspectives and with realities and t'ing ... the road becomes the sea; it's all part of the fun of making something come to life.

this is a big dready 5 ft x 4 ft and it fills the walls beautifully


did a pretty good job of matching the colour of the cushions too eh!

dready emile playing polo


               dready 'emile playing polo' - 20x12 - original commission

we were talking about this today and emile's wife asked about the angle, she said 'it kind of looks like he's going downhill.'

I told her how I remember watching a game, from high up in the right corner (looking from the field) of the stands at wellington and the angle that it gave the play ...

it was a cool day, 'cause mostly the stands were empty but for us; me, uncle danny and two celebrities all chatting and watching a little polo.

dready art - dream big





                  dready art 'us ... in dreams' - 32x20 - image

i was watching the new nike commercial and yeah they're selling sports shoes for sports dreams, but but but ...

for some of us it's easier to risk everything because we know if we fall it won't be too too far; for others sleeping in a car doesn't stop us, we fight on; for others still, physical or mental impediments are simply things you find tools to deal with, and then you continue on ... the world isn't always easy, but if you have a dream, fight on, fight on, fight on ...

but this, this is about other dreams, eh ... equally difficult to achieve and to hold on to ....

always good to walk down the road of life's adversities with the support of a good and loving partner ...

(and then when I was finished, or at least thought i was finished drawing, madeleine suggested that I do more palm leaves, that just the two that I had been using was a little off ... so more palm leaves ... and she was right ...)

peace ...

and love ...
