“Laa-Laa – last of the Telly Tubbies”
Size: 500 x 750mm
Media: Acrylic on print
Laa-laa – the last Telly Tubby to exist in the wild spent her days frolicking in busy ports and harbours, feeding off the scraps thrown to her by passing fisherman and merchants. Her favourite trick was to leap out of the water yelling “Bibbaly-cheese” at passing boats.
Painting measures 500 x 750mm and is a second-hand print that I have adorned with my own style and humour. Paintings and frames are in second-hand condition so may have marks or dents but are generally in good condition and ready to hang.
Since 2012 I have been adding my spin on those old op-shop prints that no one wants. I see it as re-interpreting a scene that someone else has setup, telling the punch-line to a joke, giving a tired print a new lease of life. Many of the paintings can also be purchased as prints.
