I have been a bit quiet on here of late, due to being a bit busy with various things…plus, it has been getting awfully cold outside in the studio while painting.  But here are a few paintings I have been working on. For something novel, the top two paintings have parts that were painted in glow in the dark paint!

Working 925 – Mixed Media on Board (80x95cms) – 2010

Why do bad things happen to good people – Spray paint on Canvas (30x40cms) – 2010

Join the Club – Mixed Media on Canvas – (40x40cms) – 2010

Here is a blast from the past.  A history lesson No Frills Art style.  This artwork was made in 1999 and inspired by Bill Posters and the urban decay on the walls of Melbourne city.

Post No Bills (4up) –  Mixed Media on Board. G.Smith, 1999.

Each of the four paintings are 60 x60 cms. (Total: 120 x 120 cms)
