Thanks for popping in.
Saturday’s blog a new technique, right?
WELL HERE’S WHAT I CALL A CHALLENGE!!!!
Remember yesterday I pointed out that Steve had been carrying a white bin liner around all day?Well, let’s take a look inside….
Whilst walking the length of the Embarcadero, we chanced upon a street artist.
He was creating art and listening to real hip hop house music.
so I thought I would share him with you,
because he was so very talented.
All he worked with was some aerosol cans of cellulose paint –
hence the mask and the glass shield.
See Alcatraz in the background?
He used a frisbee to make a moon,
and a paint scraper to create stars and flood lights.
So very much a man after my own heart.
I was watching very, very carefully,
soaking it up like a sponge.
As he was working feverishly at his artwork, I was converting everything he was doing into workable art ideas for us lot!
It took 15 minutes from a blank piece of white paper to complete.
The crowd clapped, he said the painting was for sale for the princely, very modest sum of $20 –
and I didn’t hesitate.
I stepped forward and whipped out $20
before anybody could even raise their hand.
And so now you know what was in the white bin liner…
check this out:
Alcatraz was a mask cut out of a piece of card.
The San Fran skyline.
The Pan American building.
Golden Gate Bridge
Now this might not be the kind of art I would normally go for,
but the pure talent oozing out of this modest Mexican bloke on the street just baffled me.
Very, very, very clever.
So when I get home, I want to try some new tricks.
And if I have to go to Halfords and get a loads of car spray paint and a spray suit – so be it!
I reckon it’s doable.
With a few months of practice and a lot of paint!!!!
GOT TO GIVE IT A GO;
