The Adventurous Outing

Artwork details: gouache, 19 x 13 inches (48 x 33 cm), 2006.

This is really a re-visitation of the original Strip Joint picture, which was a smallish thing in pencil over red paper, that I did once for a Christmas card design. It has been well-loved, and a version of the original I have even painted on the back of my partner's leather jacket, at his request...

so I thought a larger version was in order. Actually halfway through it I didn't think this painting was going to work at all, but when I finally had it finished I was (unusually) quite pleased with it - which demonstrates yet again that 1) The pictures that are the hardest work are often the most satisfying when they are finished, and 2) that I cannot be trusted when it comes to judging my own work...
