Believe it or not this is actually a painting in the form of Photorealism and I just love it, although it does make me crave for some doughnuts.

Maple and Chocolate

Although I do find myself a wee bit of a painter. My piece is titled Air Cadets, I did it for school and it got me an A for Higher Art and Design. Tell me what you think of it.

But I've also got a few images I am quite proud of:

This isn't my favourite artist, but...

We have a corner building almost across the street from us. It's a former business bldg. which i think has been sold, and is eventually to be turned into townhouses with underground parking. It's sat for years, empty. But it's been used for two specific media projects, As a small gorcery store from the film "Better Than Chocolate" and a small liquor shop for an episode of "Supernatural."

Last weekend, a few drawings appeared up on the walls of the building. This happens from time to time, stuff being pasted up on it's walls. But this looked nice, so I got the camera out, and photographed all of it.

Sadly, it only lasted a few days, as somebody thought it right to take all the drawings down.

Critics.

Unfocused. But still great.

And then a few days later, after the drawings had disappeared...

This appeared in their place. Sadly, the one on the other wall was already removed.

What it looked like, up close. And taped up, which looked clumsy. :P

I really like Salvador Dali's paintings. And this has to be my favourite!

I even painted a copy (well, tried to although it wasn't that bad) on an arts class a few years ago)
The Mr Freeze coasters should have speakers playing the sentence: "Let's kick some ice!" right before each launch

Here's some recent artwork to buy, we found on our little "Island" in the city....Granville Island. Great tourist place but awesome for locals, too. Many food shops, and the place to OD on arts of all physical kinds and medias/mediums. There's also our Fave Home Restaurant......The KEG, where we enjoyed steak, lobster, and a few delicious sides (Crispy Grilled Cauliflower), for a perfect visit's ending. :smile:

P.S. This is a definite ADD-ON Place to visit, explore, eat and buy.......when you come to Vancouver, to ride our Coaster. ;)

Here's some new artwork I discovered just today. It's on the side of a house, that I pass on my way to the bus stop, to get to Playland, if I can't use our car. I liked it. Enough to post it, here.
