Art by mr moo

I thought it was about time I blogged about mr moo's painting because he's thinking of opening an etsy shop - there's some logistics that need figuring out due to the size of his work, but I'm sure he'll work something out.

While he does, here's some of his art that we have hanging around the house:

This one is in our bedroom, it's about 60cm square:

It's made up mostly of paint splashes, one of which looks like a little sperm, and which I have an overwhelming urge to paint a cartoon smiley face on (but I have resisted so far)

The next one hangs above our sofa. It's bright scarlet and it's my current favourite.

...and finally, there's the dark forest green one in our bedroom. We had great fun doing this one - mr moo held the canvas under the bedroom window, and I chucked paint on it. A little touching up, et voila! One very chic painting :)

mr moo not only paints, but also makes the canvas frames so he can paint in whatever size he likes (er...mainly BIG)

We'd really love to hear what you think of them :)

very nice :D Pollock fan? once he figures out how to ship paintings of that size he really should open an etsy shop.

*snicker* smiley faced sperm, I'm going to have to doodle that now :)

Tell Mr Moo I think they look great and definately worth an Etsy shop. No idea how you would post something like that though.

Aw wow those are amazing! I'm useless at abstract art, so I have muchos respect for those who do it as good as mr moo.

not a big fan of abstracts in general but I really like the green one and the red one is fab too! Tell him to go for it - you never know until you try :) Good luck Mr Moo (and he's got his username already too!)

I think they'd sell on etsy :) Like Jen says, make sure he can post them first!
Good luck Mr Moo
