If the artist’s studio is a reflection of the mind, this photo has an almost voyeuristic quality to it.

That’s a very good point. What it says about him I really don’t know, but there’s certainly more than enough material for speculation.

I’m totally confused by this photo. I’m happy the old guy is still working away in his own space. That would be my dream. But then his prone state just looks so sad……

It definitely wasn’t the cheeriest of scenes. Even if the man wasn’t there, it would have looked a bit miserable with all the clutter, stagnant fish tanks etc. But with him there, head down on the table, there was a definite sense of sadness. Or at least there was to me.

What a complex scene you have captured here. So many things puzzle me. Why no brushes or coloured paints. Is he just whitewashing over old paintings to provide a new canvas? What’s with the tanks? For terrapins? Is that a chinese chess set in the top left? The hat , with it’s white thumbprint where he picks it up. And I’m not even going near that Betty Boop. Those two photos near the newly whited canvas – are they a relative? or his next commission? Easy to get lost in this photograph.
I got a bit of a suprise when I did a search on the only phone number I could see clearly. Idiscovered that for the hotel I’ll be staying at this easter, Tripadvisor, at the time google snapshotted the page, had 4283 reviews and 2162 photos of the hotel. Douglas Adams said that phone numbers connected everything.

There’s a lot to take in, isn’t there? The only thing I can say with any kind of certainty is that it looks like a shogi set top left. The rest is a complete mystery, which in many ways is perfect, as it allows pretty much unlimited speculation.
That’s a wonderful coincidence with the phone number. And who could ever argue with Douglas Adams?

Hey, this is ALL about the R-rated Betty Boop for me. Hilarious Lee. I need to head back in there to pour over the whole photo once or twice more.

Haha, it’s a very unexpected take on a famous character, isn’t it?
Goodness knows what other treasures lie amongst all the clutter…
