11 Voyeurs
This poem appeared in my latest poetry book – ‘There are no such things as seagulls’
And I just thought it would be fun to paint a picture and incorporate the poem within it.

I enjoyed doing it.

I discovered two seagulls
staring in the window
as I stood naked
drying off after a shower.

I did not think
they were impressed,

they turned up
the next day
for another look.


Availability of Paintings

I do my paintings using Brushes App.
They are done on my iPad.
That means the original image is on a computer rather than on paper or canvas.

I print them off on a good quality printer to good quality paper (or canvas).
I then have them mounted and framed and hang them on my wall.

I have chosen, almost from the beginning, to display them on the web as photos
of the paintings. To put the computer image up would be tantamount to giving my
art away and that does not seem right somehow.

I could sell framed copies (I have sold some) but to be honest I have no
motivation to put in the effort and energy which doing that requires. I would
much rather use that effort and energy in making more paintings.

I have also had requests from people who would like particular paintings on
their own walls and I have invariably allowed them to use the computer image to
print them off.

So, pondering all that, I have decided that the way forward will beΒ  –

1. I will continue to display on the web using photos of paintings.

2. If you would like a copy for your wall then email me and I will send you a
computer image.

3. If you do print it off and hang it on your wall then I ask two things –

A. You take a photo and email it to me.
That would be nice for me.


B. You make a donation to a charity of your choice.
I have no desire to know the amount (none of my business)
But it would be nice to know which charity.

So that is the deal

  3. Hi David,
    this poem is great, so is the painting. I think the blue harbour painting could be here as well, really like it πŸ™‚


    • Hi Ina,

      Thank you

      I have yet to have the blue harbour painting printed and framed.
      It was done as a bit of fun but I am really glad you like it πŸ™‚
