Not a good idea in Orkney. Drafts, and draughts, are all filled with sorry dangers...

Not much to show for the past months. Though lots of ideas!

Anyhoo! Most of my creative input has been put into editing and producing short films we did during 2010/11. So I post this as a Xmas card to you all.

Wishing you all season's greetings, and a joyous and creative 2012!


Much regards,

phil

Merry Christmas, Phil! And marvelous job on the cranes piece - I missed commenting earlier when you finished it. That was a major project!

Merry Christmas to you and yours Phil, and that crane work is just a wonder, what a marvelous composition you made of it.

Been a long time. Sorry my dear friends!

Saw this today. Thought it might be of interest, at least to Cornish aspiring artists...

http://www.cbwps.org.uk/

Hope to pick up a pencil, pen, brush again soon. Meantime been making films instead. Hope you find something you like here...

https://www.youtube.com/user/TeamPB100?feature=watch

All the best to all of you here!

ps I think these were the last time I put something down on paper...

Thanks. Been a bit absent from art for a long time. Hope 11 days re-visiting Menorca soon will kick it back into touch. Really would like to get back on the Art Forum and contribute again!

These piggies are fab - as was your short film. Very intense and there's a lot of that retained in this lovely piece.

welcome back old bean

the hogs are great- reminds me of an album cover: something about their line-up and youthful swagger

Had a good job finding my own thread!

Woah! I was so busy sorting this life out, that I had no time for coming back here.
For that I do apologise, and hope to be a regular correspondent once again...

Did 3 Hoopoe acrylic canvases in November. Hope they bring you all some Balearic Sunshine in these dark days...


Results below...

In the meantime, I wish you all luck, love and joy in 2013. And a happy season of Mid-Winter.

ps New Wildlife Illustration Website here.... http://philbaber.weebly.com/index.html

(The Cartoonist Baber is flaunting a portfolio here... http://philbabercartoons.weebly.com/,it's all art, in a Wildlife Way! )

Hope you enjoy it all.

Hope to be a better contributor here in 2013. Much love to all!

Phil
