^So, which one(s) did you get?
I think the Bell Tower is the best of the current lot. It's on the latest gallery invitation card too (which will be the version going on my wall :P ).

That's the one I bought. I like it a lot. Chris told me that is close to selling out as his gallery.

I also like the Carbondale Hotel. It's simple but I like the Carbondale reference it's sort of quiet. The Belltower is a riot of color and I like that, too.

I'm told by my gallery people that Belltower in Stockholm is now completely sold out. So lucky for you to get one BABF. The new Train Tracks is almost gone too. I viewed the new edition last week and really enjoyed them. I especially liked the deep colours of House on Union Street, much better than its paler counterpart from last year, I also liked the busy patterns in Iron Railing.

Thanks, I've had to wait to buy one. Chris told me Belltower was starting to get low and I'd been looking at it so decided it was time.

I should have said in my previous post, Belltower in Stockholm is pretty much the star of the show though - it looks great on the gallery wall.

That's great. :)
I read somewhere else today this was sold out now, so you're lucky.


Does anyone know if they're still selling the 'big' Drawn Blank Series catalogue / hardcover at any of the galleries? It had the orange sky Train Tracks on the cover. I'm looking to replace mine which was severely damaged when one of my bookshelves broke down...

Chris said he'll probably be getting it in again. You can email him. Tell him you got his contact thru ER.

@Charlesdarwin - I love the new Train Tracks but it was definitely out of my budget.

I just saw this.

Nice to know that you saw it up close and personal & you liked it so much. I'm looking forward to getting it.

This also provides a link to a terrific solo show of photography by Terry O'Neill, currently at the same gallery. I remember in the late 1970s when he and his future wife Faye Dunaway had a posh boutique "Dunaway O'Neill" in Los Angeles. There's some great photography in this current show, including his "Morning After the Oscars" portrait of Dunaway, the sublime portrait of Audrey Hepburn with a dove perched on her shoulder, Peter O'Toole drinking tea from a plastic cup and the color photo of the Stones in "Tin Pan Alley." I'm guessing that shot of Sinatra "On the Boardwalk" surrounded by his friends/goons was the inspiration for the "Resevoir Dogs" promotional poster. Nice all around.

Is your post an attempt at subliminal suggestion to force me to miss the pictures of Raquel Welch and Paul Newman? It won't work. It can't work.

No. It was an attempt to subliminally lure everyone away from that gorgeous photo of Bardot in bed with a dog. And you didn't mention that one, did you?

Bought two earlier this year, "bicycle 2012" in standard format and "sidewalk cafe" in medium. Dont get me wrong, I am far from loaded, just a working class guy, but was going to put £5,000 into an ISA and thought that these might be a better investement, plus give me a chance to own something special.

Had a hankering for "train tracks" though, that just seems to epitomise Bob. I have now put a deposit on a "train track"s in red, due to release next week. By then I will have three on my wall, the wife is not getting her new kitchen though. I am just hoping that if that rainy day comes along, I will be able to get my money back at least. Meantime, they are great to look at and it gives me a buzz to own them.

Nice! I bought the Clocktower in Stockholm and I love it. Great colors. Enjoy the art. I don't think you can lose on these as invesments if that's what you bought them for.

A retrospective exhibition of art work by Bob Dylan is running in London until November 14.

The exhibition, titled Bob Dylan: The Drawn Blank Series 2008 – 2014 is the first time the collection has been displayed in its entirety.


That's prints only as far as I understand - at Castle Gallery Mayfair.

Great paintings on that first link.

Train Tracks seems to speak to me the most and stuck out right away, it's just something I can kind of space out when looking at as the tracks run off into the valley of unknown with a the purple mountains wrapped around. Also think sidewalk cafe is a nice one too, it reminds me very much of a shore town I go to frequently in Connecticut, where its loaded with sidewalk life including fine restaurants and one very nice cafe.

The Drawn Blank Series 2014. Six images standard format. Two new ones Slide and Cityscape (that one's already sold out, I'm told). The other four are done in nice new colourways. Two medium format images, a very bright red Train Tracks and an arresting blockily coloured Sunflowers with a great, dark sky. As ever, I enjoy looking at these pictures.

There were also some lovely old Picasso exhibition posters in the Gallery as well, some even signed by Mr P himself - me, I love a slightly distressed old poster, but these beauties were outside my price range.

^It's my favourite of the new batch. It's the most "atmospheric". The play of light and shadow and the consistent colours make it (imo) one of his most successful and evocative versions of an image he likes to revisit quite frequently.

I love it, too. Wish I could buy one but it's not in the cards now.
