3,180: Some paintings

I did some paintings for the people I spent Xmas Eve with.
Feels a bit weird to be putting them online, but at the same time: why not, eh?

Watercolour of an imaginary Mexican landscape:

Watercolour of a cafe for the owner of said cafe:

Watercolour and gouache painting of the “Life on Mars?” seven-inch single for my pal who is a big David Bowie fan. It’s more or less life-size:

I was planning to do another seven-inch single watercolour, and asked the recipient of the Bowie one what music the other person liked. A few artists were mentioned, and then a auto-suggestion typo thingy happened, when she typed the word “guns” on her German phone, it changed it to “hund,” so instead of a watercolour 7″, this person got a painting of Dogs ‘N Roses:

And for two pre-teen kids, acrylic and coloured pencil pictures of thingies from a children’s film franchise:

A quick we chart re. the holidays.

The song in my head when I woke up this morning
Elizabeth Taylor by Clare Maguire.

On this day
The Beautiful South vs. los Tigres del Norte, 26 December 2012. I heard a song in Mexico that seemed familiar, and it was one of those things where it was nagging away in my brain for a while before finally, yes! it sounds like the Beautiful South.
