Scooj, B, Haiku, May 2019

A, B, C.


Learning to spray-paint

with my A, B, Cs. There is

plenty of headroom.

  • I’ve finally set myself up with some boards in the garden and paint. This is going to be a very long and difficult journey. It is so difficult, and my admiration for the artists I write about has gone stratospheric. I thought I’d start with the alphabet, and see if repetition and practice get me anywhere. If, by the time I get to Z I have made no improvement, then I’ll hang up my boots, and accept that I am just not cut out for this. But if I don’t try, I’ll never know.

I am Stephen. I live in Bristol, UK. I decided to shorten my this: Wildlife, haiku, travel, streetart, psychogeography and my family. Not necessarily in that order.

  1. Bravo! Nothing ventured, nothing gained. Draw on your life experience as inspiration for your creativity. Paint haikus in dramatic colour.

  2. You don’t have to do it for any other reason than you actually enjoy doing it
    If you enjoy doing it then continue and find your own style
    If you don’t enjoy it then leave it for a while and then have another go . . .

    In the meantime
    B is for Bravo . . .

      1. As I said just enjoy it
        That way no piece will come out badly as you’ll have had fun which was the main point
        I think you definitely need to stop being so tough on yourself
        What it looks like doesn’t really matter the having fun is what matters
