Whoever said life has to be serious, or come to that Art? I acknowledge rugby is deadly serious though. However despite my imagined physical prowess I am not a professional rugby player or come to that a rugby player of any kind, well not anymore.

I am a professional artist though and despite my protestation a serious one. So I am deadly serious about art but not too serious about life!

To be in a constant state of happiness is not easy. In fact it is far easier to be continually miserable and rely on others for their cheerfulness.

So there we have it; we have to be serious about not taking life too seriously.

One of the tenets regarding naive art is not to take to serious a look at life and to put that forward in art. It can be difficult if the artist thinks about it. A truly paradoxical situation.

Well seriously, here I am doing just that with this recent series of naive paintings on the serious sport of rugby. I think it’s fun I hope you do too.

From as little as £45 each, individually printed Artist Quality Giclee Print.
