Dick Frizzell – The Painter


Enjoying this book a lot! His art is fun and his storytelling is fun. I identify with him a lot. Drawing from comic books as a kid, being the best drawer in the class. Uni in the sixties at Canterbury.

I learn about art too. For example the British painter William Scott was briefly an influence on Frizzell. I’ll post up some of his. I like them. Simple, but really more difficult to pull off than they look!

Like an adolescent I have been playing with my signature. Unlike an adolescent I am conscious of identity, how being a therapist and an art blogger in the social media can be complex.

I like this one!

La Bella Principessa

From World News

A portrait of a young woman thought to be created by a 19th century German artist and sold two years ago for about $19,000 is now being attributed by art experts to Leonardo da Vinci and valued at more than $150 million.

The unsigned chalk, ink and pencil drawing, known as “La Bella Principessa,” was matched to Leonardo via a technique more suited to a crime lab than an art studio – a fingerprint and palm print found on the 13 1/2-inch-by-10-inch work.

Definition of TV

A television is a screen with a couch in front of it.

I have been watching Ted Talks on my iPhone.

(Go to iTunes app, search TED talks, tap More Podcasts, & there they are, tap one to play live, no need to download)

I have found this OK, but prefer to download the audio, as I can then listen as I walk around. I have little use for the video… until I got the connector to watch it on TV.

Now I can watch them when I need to recline.

AND with company, no longer in solitude.

The iPhone opens the door to TV, something I have not watched for years because I NEED to time-shift & I CAN’T watch ads.

You Tube, Ted Talks, the ABC (Australian) Talking Heads… I can go to the couch & bob out… just like the old days.

What is worth watching?
