Fine Art Fun Stuff: Here are some photographs and images created just for fun and artistic promotional marketing purposes.

If anyone is able to do something equal or better Fine Art Fun Stuff and send me the images for inclusion here, I will give a free print if suitably impressive…!

Here is one of my personal happy places – Saunton Sands in Devon, which is close to my old home. Bliss is a champagne cream tea on the terrace of the hotel overlooking the beach and a little higher up from where this photo was taken. You get an idea of scale when studying the size of the people on the beach, especially the surfers carrying their surfboards back from the sea just above the .com letters. It took around an hour and didn’t appear to generate much additional traffic to my website, though at least it inspired friends of a couple getting married the next day to do something similar.

Here’s a scrabble board, one of my favourite board games, using the letters to create as many words relative to my particular artwork as I could quickly think of, along with a few others to use up most of the remaining letters…

Here’s my dream job

And how could I not include a few Artist jokes:

An artist asked the gallery owner if there had been any interest in his paintings on display at that time. “I have good news and bad news,” the owner replied. “The good news is that a gentleman enquired about your work and wondered if it would appreciate in value after your death. When I told him it would, he bought all 15 of your paintings.” “That’s wonderful,” the artist exclaimed. “What’s the bad news?” “The guy was your doctor…”

An artist had been working on a nude portrait for a long time. Every day, he was up early and worked late – bringing perfection with every stroke of his paint brush. As each day passed, he gained a better understanding of the female body and was able to really make his paintings shine. After a month, the artist had become very weary from this non-stop effort and decided to take it easy for the day. Since his model had already shown up, he suggested they merely have a glass of wine and talk – since normally he preferred to do his painting in silence. They talked for a few hours, getting to know each other better. Then as they were sipping their claret, the artist heard a car arriving outside. He jumped up and said, “Oh no! It’s my wife! Quick, take off your clothes!”

After his wife divorced him, Steve asked his artist friend Dave to fix him up with a blind date. The morning after, Steve called Dave and moaned “what kind of a guy do you think I am. That girl you fixed me up with was balding and cross-eyed; her nose was long, thin and crooked; she had hair growing on her face; she was flat chested and her ankles were as thick as her thighs”. Dave replied “either you like Picasso, or you don’t like Picasso.”

Q: Why did Van Gogh become a painter?
A: Because he didn’t have an ear for music.
