TIME OUT (kitchen out-takes) – Simone – photo-art copyright Dennis Mealor 2020

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It should be real time out, but I have this amazing Sony camera that I love, and it is so good for in-between shots. Often better than the Digital SLR for more off-the-cuff pics. It is less intrusive, so the result is often some nice in-between snapshots during a photo shoot. I love the light in this kitchen. Lots more of Simone in future, so please watch this space.

ANZAC DAY – Lest We Forget

the millions of lives lost or destroyed by the tragedy and futility of all wars.

 

WAR

(A poem by Dennis Mealor (c) 2020):

 

I think upon an Anzac Day

Of children playing

Soldier play.

Of plastic guns and lying still

When you get shot,

When you get killed.

And staying down for the count of ten,

Then getting up and killed again. 

And killed a thousand times or more.

Get used to it,

Here comes a war.

MRI Tomb Revisited – copyright Dennis Mealor

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Can’t believe it is nearly 10 years since since my exhibition at Bundaberg Regional Art Gallery (BRAG). The exhibition was Fragments of Vision (2011), a cathartic “coming out” after experiencing severe vision loss due to strokes on both my optic nerves. This painting is “MRI Tomb” – acrylics & mixed media on canvas (two panels). My eye trauma was the condition NAION. Luckily my vision loss stabilised, and today I can still see the world, and still paint, albeit with 90% less sight. But I value my little bit of vision more than I did when it was normal. We don’t know what we’ve got until it’s gone. Happy Days.

Day 1 Life Drawing under Isolation – copyright Dennis Mealor 2020

5 minute Sketch in my usual cartoon style.

 

All life drawing at the local studio stopped of course, because of that C word taking over the World. So bring it on home, and ask a neighbour too. This is a 5 minute sketch of a nearby neighbour, Sarah, who had never modelled before. She was already a friend of ours, so starting a small life “group” of three was staying within the rules of only one visitor. Great to draw, wonderful curves, I hope she decides to give it a go with the life class in town, when all this is over. Stay safe everyone.
