Don't you just love getting presents? It was my birthday a couple of weeks ago and I was lucky enough to get a new camera from my boys. I absolutely love books, so I was thrilled to get two from them and another from my sister - all gorgeous additions to the coffee table!
On the weekend I had a rare opportunity to sit outside in the sun and read one of them, Dick Frizzell - The Painter, with foreword by Hamish Keith. One of my favourite New Zealand artists, this book has been on my wishlist for some time, so I thought I'd use my new camera to take some pics and share it with you.
If you're not familiar with his work, but love popular culture, this book is definitely for you. Likewise, if you are interested in art in general, in particular artistic practise, then this is a great read. When Dick completed his art studies he earned a living working for ad agencies, animation companies and producing book illustrations, before finding his way to becoming the artist that he is today.
These a just a few pages from the book - there is so much more inside. I know that every time I pick it up, I'll discover something new about Dick Frizzell, and like his art, I'll get enjoyment from it for many years to come.
