‘A brush in my head’

Oil and multi-medium paintings by Scottish artist  Lago

THE BEGINNING ....... 60 years ago after spending 2 happy weeks painting a landscape for my final art exam at school my art teacher, a very good one, looked at my work and after some time said, ''Michael what on earth is this, the people are just blobs in the distance, it isn't real, it has no fine detail, not at all what I expected from you, I am very disappointed’’.

His remark has stayed with me ever since and some years later after continuing to paint animals, flowers, landscapes etc. selling them to friends and associates, I came to appreciate one artist in particular, Lowry and his famous 'matchstick men'.

I often wondered what my teacher would have said to him, blobs, matchsticks? That sentence helped me understand that all great artists are 'one-offs'

Originally I only painted topical subjects using oils and a lot on metal but for the past 20 years also acrylics. My work images my best thoughts, ie painting! Most of my paintings are dimensional so change according to where you stand also how they are lit.
