This piece is very dynamic, I just love the life in it. Isn't it amazing what you can do with the "Paint" program. Nice work.

Hi Sharon, I was beginning to think no one liked these. I hope it captures something of the Australian lifestyle.
thanks for commenting

Is that your work, Ross?

It's a raw, elemental Hockney. I like it. It's unaffected and messy. I see freedom although using that program is tedious, limiting, and restraining.

Good job.

Yes Paul, all my own work, no photos involved, but as you said the limitations of 'Paint' meant I stopped using it a few years ago, I did consider buying a pen mouse and doing computer drawing but never did, in fact though I have been drawing since a kid I rarely do any art work now.
I have always liked Hockney's work so I'm flattered you mention him.
kind regards

Fascinating! Such concentration! I mean: How in the world did you manage to paint all of those horizontal and vertical lines without any bends or curves or wiggles? I mean: Why, after a while, didn't your mouse-hand cramp up?

Lovely work, Ross! Please post more.

[I'm just hoping, now, that I haven't broken any rules by bumping up a thread that has been stagnant since green-up time.]

Hi Patricia
I developed ways of zig-zagging across the page by doing abstract paintings.
I don't paint anymore, just write poetry. I have a damaged right shoulder which restricts what I can do. You can see a lot of my mouse/Paint artwork on YouTube, under Ross Hamilton Hill.
kind regards

After watching some of your videos on YouTube, I found the drawings in "Blues it is a woman" particularly interesting. I watched that video at least three times; and, because the drawings didn't contain a multitude of colors to distract my attention, I was able to actually listen to the words you were singing. Nice work, Ross.

Thanks Patricia, glad you liked it, I have very fond memories of House of Voo , a friend on Myspace called JesseJane who wrote the poem that I converted to the song.
