The Mare Street lime wanted in on the action, it was just lying there on the pavement, waiting to be picked up. The ongoing series of fruit studies, quick paintings, small pieces on found board or recycled cardboard or canvases that had already been worked on. It started with the lemon from Ridley Road Market and they guy saying “here painter man have a lemon to paint”, the lemon sat here waiting to be painted, a pomegranate joined in, a pomegranate from a Hackney shop, and then the lime joined in. I wasn’t a plan to paint a series of fruit studies, it just kind of happened, there’s no plan, no reason, I’m just enjoying it. Just enjoying the paint and the colour (that you can never actually photograph).
42 days into 2019, 42 days since the last art drop, I did put a painting in my bag the other day, not one of the fruity ones, a leaf, it is still in my bag, I might hang it on a wall for someone to take should they wish to, there again maybe not, I did get an invite from a gallery to come drop art in their seaside town, don’t want to go to the seaside until summer in in the air though. We’re working on a number of shows and events right now, next up is the ReDeckorate SkatePal show opening next Saturday….
