photoblog image "Father"

"Father"

In every photographer there was a painter, a true artist, awaiting expression- Pablo Picasso

Today...something different from little ol' Skee.

A digital painting that I did yesterday.

software used painter 9.5 and photoshop, drawn on my wacom A4 pad. Today i'm going back to my roots.  I feel abit rusty but in a couple of weeks I should be back to my normal self I feel, sadly I havent painted for yonks.

Todays picture I dedicate to my Art teacher, Art-father and mentor Abayomi Barber probably Nigeria's most talented artist ever. It was the old man's birthday yesterday... pity I couldn't get through to him. I will try again today.

Many yrs have passed since I used to paint in his art studio in Lagos Nigeria, those where the good ol days. I used to be the first one in the studio and the last one to leave...ah the good ol days!

it is a shame to see that you are recording conversations between us. I cannot trust you anymore as i do not know who you really are, why would you do a thing like that,it just means you are putting up a show for me thinking i will not cotton on to it

Recording that conversation was the wrong thing to do!! there is no justification and just incase you did not record the part where i said this i am saying it again so that you will be in doubt of what i am saying. I want out of this relationship, you can keep your work, your art, your photography, your family but one thing you will most certainly not have is me.U turned off your phones one by one strategically so that you could do your thing with your blog uninterrupted

I know that you will NEVER meet anyone else who cares like i did for you.No one will ever ever be like me no one it is your personal loss...one you should mourn with regret as you were far to obsessed with your art to see it, to appreciate it, to receive it, all you had eyes for was what you did and you neglected to death the one thing that will be out of your reach.Notice i havent insulted you i have just stated my point to you ...

A true Artist, you've done your mentor proud.
I am humbled. I feel like I'm witnessing something of true artistic value. You have buckets of talent, my friend. I am grateful to have found this site, and your work. I cannot wait to see what you offer us in acouple of weeks when you've shaken off the rust!!! Have a pleasant evening, and please pass on my respects to Mr.Barber he taught you well.

If you don't have your own dedicated site on the net, you damnwell should, and IF you do WHAT'S THE URL, man?!!
