Troy Lovegates  New works

@streetviewto grabbed a nice shot of a mural I painted in 2015 up north in Sudbury for @upherefestival ... my oma used to tell me stories of little fairies raising hell when we walked through the forests trails up at her cottage ... fairies that could dance and sing so beautifully that they steal years from your lives ... anyways the landscape around Sudbury reminded me of their cottage ... so I did a little painting of a tea party in the woods being interrupted by an entrancing fairy dance ... thanks to @alexandrathegreat @nicoglaude @andrewknapp for the adventures

Paisley doesn't give a fuck about this studio stuff ... she wants to get out of here and chase skunks and squirrels and fight bubbly creeks ... lets go !!!

Black hole ... wallet sized walrus ... color ... weather ... post studio - pre-sleep scratchings ... and other fillers

I finally had the time to go see the finished mural that @cannondill and I painted out in San Leandro... here is a shitty shaky walk through video trying to balance a pulley dog and bored baby and shoot ... thanks to @athenbgallery and the city of San Leandro for putting this together

Paisley the studio dog

Working on a giant commission at the studio for the last weeks ... they were interested in some of the clutter-muffin paintings I was doing years ago ....a continuation of the mash and discomfort and overwhelming density... I am on that mindset where I want to take months on one piece, years if I didn't have to worry about $$$... trying to find a wall this summer to do something like this

Doodles from the train ... as a stay at home dad you need to take advantage of your free little windows of art opportunity... baby naps and train rides become precious drawing sessions ... here are some quickies from the last month ... this book is now full and headed to Barcelona for an exhibition at Aktivitat gallery curated by the one >>>>>>> @juancarlos.noria <<<<<<

My Saturday night was doodling and Star Trek the next generation binging ... still recovering my old bones from muralising mixed with coughy cold from the fam

The final worker for San Leandro... I will get a video when @cannondill has finished all the tools and other creations in their hands and beyond ... thanks to @athenbgallery and the city of San Leandro

Ah I like this version better ... tomorrow is the last of the San Leandro workers ... at the taller end of the wall now ...
