Well Stanley I prefer ribbons and lace! Knickers potray large and ugly like the bloomers of the Victorians. Glad you are recharged after the surfing. There is a popular surfing resort near us in Brittany at a place called Guidel Plage it looks like an invation of seals on Sunday mornings. Eileen

Conor, drawing a white beard on white paper must be like working in negative mode. I think my brain would rebel!

Hi Belle, they should be dry I've not touched them for weeks as I've thrown myself into the Hopkins drawing. I've really enjoyed drawing him and need it finished for a competition I'd like to enter. Then I will get back to the painting. Hope your well not heard from you for a while. Or moh is she ok?

Conor, when I was at my peak I could never put weight on, stuck on 168lbs till I was about 40 no matter how much I ate or how hard I worked. God took care of it after that!

Thanks for asking - yes I am fine, just don't come on here very often - not enough topics of interest for me. Enjoy looking at your work though Conty - the pictures are fantastic.

Hi Moh, Glad all is ok. Is it year two for you at College Connor? Would love to see more of your oils etc as you go through the year, it is always interesting to see the progression from precise pencil work to a different medium, it's a road I had to go down myself many years ago.. and it wasn't always a smooth path, but worth the doing!

i like the photo Stanley, that would make a good drawing.

moh, at least your ok i was just worrying that id not seen you here and thank you :)

belle, yes going into second year and i will be doing lots of painting i hope as i have enjoyed painting alot though the fumes do make me feel sick n dizzy, even with the window open, parents think im getting high so have put a fan behind me to blow the fumes out the window!! hahaha good job or you could be seeing some weird stuff posted otherwise hahaha

anyway. i have finished the Antony Hopkins drawing and i am pleased with how he has turned out, think its the best one yet, though the photo im posting is not a scanned image so the whites are not true, but i think youll get the idea of what it looks like
here you go

Brilliant Conor, I think you might be right about the constant improvement. As for the pic of me, feel free! Question is what would the title be?

Sorry....
My mum and dad have separated so not a good time... I've moved my studio so it's not at home.
I have just won a competition with Antony Hopkins. And I've been working on a sculpture.. Self expression and funnily enough I'm screaming.. It's finished

Fed up... At the mo

No need to apologise Conor for something you can't control. Life is a bummer! Some of us have been in the same place and don't forget they will both be feeling terrible. Give your mother my love.
Good news about the competition and it must be an exciting time setting up on your own. Are you near your Mum? Good look with it all and keep us up to speed when you can, we all care about you.

Hello Conor Sorry to hear about your parents but am pleased to hear about you winning the competition you deserve it. You really boost my day with your activities. You are a very talented person and I for one am in awe of your creations. Don't be fed up I wish I could help, just remember The prayer of serenity. God grant me Serenity to accept the things I cannot change, Courage to change the things I can and Wisdom to know the difference. Look forward to your next creation, I wouldn't mind an original Conor Farr before he gets to famous. Eileen
