Post one or two that is the question

Recommended Posts

Aye up Muckers, shall post two in one I reckon... Firstly I am trying my hand at Northern Soul paintings as its a damn fine reason to be consumed all day everyday...where would I put a pic of my latest painting to see what folk think please? Not promo, just for feedback really....

And secondly, this pic of a pair of (very funky) shoes I think say 'Coasters' inside, theres no info with them on Pinterest, has anyone had anything like them or know of them please? Brand? Maybe style, and possibly year (ish)

Cheers, Nik :-)

Nik, I'm sure you'll not go too wrong with your pictures, if you were to do an Alice in Wonderland version of the Casino I'd bid on it (eat or drink this has wonderful connotations with the place, probably not just for me).  The sales area is your best place and if you were to pm someone that is a fan of your work every time there's one (or more) for sale to give a nudge in a topic in Freebasing then you're not exactly being pushy.

As for the shoes, I'll use a quote from Doctor Doolittle as sung by the late great Sir Richard Attenborough, "I've never seen anything like it in my life".

That design is called Basket Weave made by Solatio in the 70s. I've never seen them in that colour though. Coasters must be a cheap imitation.

I think they were also called 'Diamonds'

They look like Solatios, round the 74/75 period? A mate of mine recently bought 4 pairs from somewhere, one of them definitely had some colour in it, but can't recall, what, I know I'd never seen the like before. if I bump into him I'll ask :)

Nik,

This Forum would be the place for posting for feedback about your paintings.

They look like they have been nicked from a bowling alley and polished up to me.

Thank you SO very much you grand peoples....I found a blue version of the Solatios on thier site (£120 squids :ohmy: gulp!) which are rather less imitation, so have gone with those for my current painting 'I'm com'um home in the morn'un'..... Really appreciate your guidance, been missing cos am constantly painting .... SO many ideas and only two hands 

cheers again, nik :-)
