I have been reading a very interesting book called “Cognition in Action” by Smyth, Collins, Morris and Levy.  It’s a university text for psychology students in the U.S. and deals specifically with the science of cognitive psychology.  I am particularly interested in how this applies to my art. I have never considered myself a realist as a painter.  One of my favourite by lines, is “if you need a picture to look real, go find a photographer”.  I have always tried to represent my subject, whether it be a still life, a landscape or a portrait.  This is perhaps why I like to use palette knives, credit cards, rubber

Do you suffer at a full moon?.. I do, I mean seriously.  My wife says she can set a calendar by me, because I get all depressed, mopey and maudlin around a full moon.  I guess that makes me a certifiable lunatic. Anyway.. Its a full moon in Sydney, and I feel like shit.  So I decided to paint.  Now usually what happens is I try my usual style, and it comes out like crap, I tear it up, throw it away, and feel even worse.  So much for art therapy. But tonight, I thought I'd try something totally different.  I would paint something that required concentration and fine strokes.. totally away from my usual slap the paint around of the page and see
