Ride The Hill Vert Jam



Ride The Hill Vert Jam




Was meant to put this blog up last week but have been busy with the Arts Fair.

The day was warm, the riders were hot and it turned out to be a spicy event!


It's fair to say that the guys over at Remolition, BFC and Ride The Hill have posted up words and pictures to match the day.

I did spend several hours playing on the quiet slopes during the day but as it was hitting 20C it was time to sit and watch the guys havin it!


Not going to list all the riders but must say hats off to y’all especially, Mr Crowhurst, Mr Brind, RTH and the BFC.


Maybe next year, I’ll enter, but maybe not.....

Funny day today and a bit on the spooky side with skull-a-day.

This is how it goes...

I was about to post up my Easter "day offs" and got sidetracked checking the blogger dashboard. Citizen Agent @ skull-a-day had posted my silver skull painting up skulladay.blogspot.com/2010/04/silver-skull-1.html .  (thanks for that).

The date of the post was Easter Monday and was told earlier today that my grandfather died late Sunday night/early Sunday morning.

So maybe I'll change the title and call it "Jesus Grandpa!"

Spooky weird coincidence or just bad timing?

God rest his skull.....

I liked Screen C's comment note and I did make some previous work for an exhibition aptly titled "...by misdaventure" 



"Skull (after)" was created by accident, it was meant to be a rotation of colour, shape and area. However, after the final layer of paint, I  looked and thought "$hit!" thats a rainbow swaztika!

It was intended to upset anybody, rather to celebrate an exploration of line, colour, space and composition.
