Fruit Salad With A Melon

Don’t feel like putting all the fruits in the bowl? There is another way you can do this!

First, cut a cantaloupe melon half open then slightly remove the seeds then you will be able to put any fruits you wish into the melon instead of the bowl. This will prevent you from having to do the dishes after your meal and you can enjoy your fruit salad!

Creating a watermelon bowl would look awesome if you add some different kind of fruits in like pineapples, apples, grapes, oranges and so on. Great for breakfast or desserts.

All About An Artist’s Richard Blunt

Hey Fellas,

Richard Blunt talks about how his life was like when he was growing up and into the music life until he was in mid twenties. He kept pushing and pushing to find the right career path for himself. Finally, he found the love and the passion of his art and painting then he realizes the art is what he ever wanted to.

Here is my interview with Richard Blunt:

You left school to pursue in art and music, Which one of those would you prefer be doing?

I loved both art and music when I was growing up but I think music was more exciting to be involved in when I was younger. The idea of being stuck in a studio on my own all day when I was 18 didn’t really appeal as much as the madness of being in a band with friends. But in my mid twenties art and painting became more appealing. I got a lot of the partying and craziness out if my system early on so now I would much prefer to be painting.

Between art and music, when did you realize you had to rediscover the career path?

I put everything I had into music and trying to find a career in music but it was hard work trying to make any money and I was already coming to the end of the line and getting really fed up. I was struggling with writers block and couldn’t seem to write any new songs. I hadn’t done any art for years but I decided to have a go at oil painting as a bit of a creative outlet. I instantly fell in love with the painting and it wasn’t long before it became all I wanted to do. I was also out of work at the time and was struggling to get a job so I thought I would have a go at trying to sell some of my art to help pay the bills. So far I’ve been really lucky and the decision has payed off.

How do you feel when you started drawing certain arts?

This is going to sound a bit trite or cheesy but I kind of felt like I was supposed to be making art. I felt like I had spent years doing the wrong thing and that I had finally found what I was meant to be doing.

Have you ever acted in a film?

No, I haven’t but I would like to.

According to your site, I really love how you add so much passion and love in those pictures, What do you define these pictures?

I always find it hard to define my work but it’s nearly always inspired by my own experiences. I’m predominantly a painter who tries to tell a story. Over the last few years my work has gone from having quite a lonely feel to the more recent, romantic theme. I got married around the same time I started this series so that has no doubt helped inspire the changes in my work. This most recent series is also a continuing story and many of the paintings are linked to each other in some way.

Image

What do you see yourself in10 years?

I’d hope that I would be an artist who can still make a living from his art who can take care of his happy and healthy family really. I have always been very ambitious though so I will always strive to push further and do better. The more people that find some sort of enjoyment in my art the better. But the ultimate ambition would be to do at least one painting that would be good enough to make it into a national gallery/collection and stand the test of time

What are your favourite artist/ or music?

My list of music would be way too long… But some of my favourite artists are, Atkinson Grimshaw, Caravaggio, John William Waterhouse, Edward Hopper, Andy Warhol, Jeremy Mann, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Jeremy Geddes and Vermeer to name a hand full.

8) If there is a famous artist, who would you like to work with?

That’s a hard one as a painter but if i’d been alive at the time it would have to be Andy Warhol. I think he would have been such a creative inspiration. His involvement in pop culture and the way he bought music, film and art together would have been great to be part of. Warhol was also a master at marketing his work.

What advice would you suggest anyone who wants to be an artist?

The best advice I can give is to just go for it and don’t let anyone tell you you can’t do anything. When I left school I let a career adviser who said I’d “never make a living as an artist” talk me out of going to study fine art. It was ten years later before I finally decided to try.

Thank you Richard for taking your time to converse and interview with me.

The Falls Inn Hotel

My family and I went to a hotel called ” The Falls Inn” in Bonjor”, Ontario. We had a big breakfast together for my mom’s birthday party, the food was huge and all those desserts available on the table. I was too full to eat a lot.  Everyone had a great time and all the conversations they had. The atmosphere was very comfortable and people enjoy their service and the environment.  After breakfast, we went outside to see the falls (the water were very beautiful).  The last time I went there was when my brother got married and had a wedding party there and we all loved that place.
