A few years ago I was blessed to take part in a show with my good friends Siggy and Bob, a husband and wife team, both painters, both internationally renown, both extraordinary people who breath art almost every moment of their waking life.
Siggy, a delightful German who spends a lot of time in Tuscany doing Tuscan things, came up with the title for that show.
It was called Ménage à Trois - a title I thought quite innocent until I noticed a visiting French artistes' sudden shortness of breath as she explained the title to one of her less worldly Australian counterparts.
Hmm I thought, I wonder what she thinks Siggy and Bob and Andrew get up to!
So this year in mid-November, my wife and I will be showing with Bob and Siggy at the same gallery.
Of course the show is Ménage à Quatre... :)
These are a few of the paintings I have been working up for the show. Acrylic on canvas.
You can read about Sieglinde Battley here if you like. And also here
And Robert Birch has his site here. I'd highly recommend taking a look at Bob's sketchbook!
Bob was my painting teacher when I studied Fine Art at college. I am blessed to be his friend.
I made another post featuring Bob and Siggy a while back. It has the Newspaper reviews of Ménage à Trois. The post is here if you would like to read it.
I am so sorry I had my comments turned off. I didn't realise what a frustrating pain it was until I visited a friend's blog today and I had to hunt around to leave a comment.
Thank you for coming to my blog.
