I’ve spent the best part of the last 9 months painting artworks to be displayed at the All About WA exhibit at Arts Edge Joondalup. Now I’ve decided to let my hair out and take a walk on the wild side. What are your thoughts so far?

Comment on Facebook I’ve spent the ...

Wild alright! When is the next full moon? I love the juxtaposition of intense colour and monochrome and then when you move closer, there’s a world of fantastical stories- in my head anyway. A touch of Dali in the foreground, the red and white striped gear bounced me from Where’s Wally to Tweedledum/dee. What mysteries are there in the river and stairs. Then I hear you say ‘…. Don’t go looking for a story…’. I love that it’s so vibrant and so DJW.

What I love about your work, so much is happening. You can’t look at it and walk past. You actually have to take time and look. This is perfect.

Great work Donald I can just hear Barry saying what is this artist going to come up with next keep your inspiration going and keep us all entertained thanks Donald OAM πŸ’–

So much to see in this and then when you look at it again, you see more. Love it ❀️

Always loved it when you ‘dropped off your meds’ too : the wild is let lose ...as for the hair ... well !! Brilliant piece. πŸ€ͺ

Amazing 🀩 There’s so much going on., on so many levels. ✨ very inspiring πŸ„

Love it amazing as always 🀩

Love it, can see bits of your work over the years in this one.

Love it Don. Vibrant, happy & a touch wacky…just the way we love it ♥️♣️♠️

I absolutely love it

I love it, you are a very talented man!!!

Ooooh just absolutely LOVE IT!. I could disappear into that one.

I just love your wild side Don . Unravelling your mind in these works is like looking for where’s Wally!! πŸ™„πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£

It looks really magnificentπŸ‘β€οΈ

Looks great Don love the colours

Absolutely fabulous darling. 🍾

What does your therapist think about it lol. I love it!

Looks great mate

Absolutely love, love, love

I love this piece! ❀️

Love this so much!

My first thought was that you followed Alice through that looking glass! Wow! ♥️

Now we see your wild side

Insane! Where are the men in their long white coats, coming to take you away? haha!! Love it!!

Wow - love it Don

Did you ever get that children's book off the ground that we discussed. Surrounding what was through the red door.

That’s the art I love, a piece where you stand back and interpret what you see, love it 😍

Really love that charcoal tree Don

You need a safety harness and a mattress on the floor!! And no drinkies Don πŸ˜‚

I want my dinner

The dogs are inspired too, sometimes a bit randy

Good night you two ❀️

Mick Kelly. That tree appears in my painting with a red door in it.

You'd make a really affective white rabbit Don.

I’ve seen that tree in the back yard.

Is that a fried egg towards the bottom mid painting?

Your gunna need a lot of wax

A tyre with a wine glass holder

I’m going to need a bigger wall!

Hi Don and Emma... Best I crack a beer, settle in and enjoy the D n E show πŸ‘£β€

Is that figure with the ted dress and yellow face smoking a bong?

Hi Don love the steps to infinity

At least remembered where he left the painting

I will be there too Tomorrow

Thanks heaps both of you xx

That one looks like it’s taken hours! 🌟

Hi Emma and Don

Took me a while

Hello Don finally got time to watch you!!

Yep in WA. Hope to see you when you're here... Thanks to Don I love charcoals x

The first satin colour made me see the shape of a triceratops and now it’s like a mythical forest for me!! I love how many ways art can be viewed πŸ₯°

I'm not sure if I'll be there tomorrow, may have to great grandsit

Something mythical definitely! and Cindy Dawson will need to buy it for her Grandson Ollie πŸ˜‰πŸ₯°

Can’t wait to see the collection in Perth!!

It's a corroboree of birds and bees

Lovey and I will shout you champers, Emma!

Blue mountains. Eucalyptus oil!

Looks like a scene from Tassie!

Sounds wonderful

look forward to it

Can I let you know in the morning please

I knew Don from Logan Village 25 years ago - still inspiring!

His hardy mountain pony could scarcely raise a trot….

Good evening Emma and Don

All behind the green door

The hills are alive!!!

Love you all!β€οΈπŸ’™

Haven't changed Don!

Soft stuff it will be then!

It's very Australian

yes but hot covid

It’s a nice wall.

Brolgas dancing?

We could not stop laughing πŸ˜‚ during the performance 🎭 after all the years that have past from when he was a not so shy lad some 50 years ago. ‘“Did I say 50 πŸ˜„” still the same. Love to you mate. Kerrie & Peter

hey there, one of best childhood memories is having art lessons with you. Emma my mum was your brownie leader.

This is so fresh and lovely. Reminds me of bunches of shasta daisies or chrysanthemums gathered for Mothers Day

I'm loving this one Don, it's so soft and mushy

Yeah the sunshine in my life has returned love you XXX

We need to suit up for the green door experience

Dance of the fairies. From nutcracker

I'm glad you are feeling better

There are a few songs about what’s behind the green door….hmmm including a Celtic punk band.

I love the way Don just dabs on colours & then turns it into something amazing.

Your in touch with your feminine side tonight Don

I’m spectacular glad your over manvid…

I wish I lived there still so I could see him in action.

It reminds me of the flower field in bambi could paint Flower (the skunk) in the middle.

Can't be alone. Needs some friends

This is just beautiful Don!

The ability to produce a volume of work while suffering a mental illness is super impressive

Yeah looking forward to that

I see a phoenix

This is amazing Don!

Looks like big bird

Well hello me ol’ mate and that chick in the background that’s always talking 😝

Nothing a firepit won’t fix

Better than you, I think Don!

It’s beautiful ❀️

Hello Don and Emma from Cairns.

Can you spray the back of the canvas with medium

Emma can you do a close up for me

I like that a lot!!

Jack sparrow appears

I will be there tomorrow.

But i want to come anyway

Marg said the police couldn't keep up!!

Sorry I won’t be there. Will be just out of quarantine and will stay away until next week.

One day Brad some young fella will say that to you. But thinking about it now, you don't know the meaning of the word work.

Hello Don, Emma and all that is watching

It brings in the bait fish

It’s almost Darcy Doyle ish.

Were you a Ryebuck Shearer , Don?

I love it Don, but it seems a different type of lonely with all the sails furled.

Hi Don. I had a couple bring in wine of your paintings to frame today

As a new follower, are you self taught? You are amazing!

If they didn’t have sails the painting would look like everyone out there prawning at the moment.

It's looking better and betterer. Drinks and nibbles on the sandbank at low tide with the cruise group. Heaps of fun.

Hello Don, I'm on the way, in rainy Canberra at the moment. Get that bar sorted out.

Put a smiley face in the bottom right to make mrs Dunn feel better hahaha

Rebecca Hudson… we need to do another paint n sip with Don…

Turquoise colours... My favourite! Oceans of love to you guys πŸ‘£πŸ’š

I've had my dinner, I'm okay now

I'm really liking this Don

We know who to put first 😏

Come for a glass of wine

No just kidding, I loved it

Hi Emma and Don. Looks like rocket fuel.

Great work! See you next week

Hi Don and Emma. I have some beautiful Don Waters art at my home now. Thank you. Feel so very opulent here!!

The thing I love about your art is that you can look at something and be drawn to something else

Sitting on the deck having drinks with Don

The bottom left almost looks like a hand reaching out for them

Robbo reckons you need someone to do the edges for you!!

Looks quite ghostly but not dark like evil

Or maybe my imagination is running away with me

I’ll send Kerry she is good at giving directions

The Great Wall still doesn’t have canvas on it yet.

Put James Bond at the end of the tunnel

Been there and spoken to him already. It’s all sorted.

Is the Beenleigh class on tomorrow at 9.00am?

Throw a demon in could be an IRON MADIEN album cover lol

Hello. first time watcher. wow watching it come alive very inspiring. 😊

Looks like they are in the fathers hands

Lol I kinda like the darkness of it

Love the colours.

Hi all, sorry I’m late.

Love the orange.

A haunted pirate ship

Happy Easter

Where is the red door?

Robbo wants to know is it a portal?

Where is the puppy.

Happy Easter

Certainly making a Melbourne night very enjoyable! Thanks guys!β€οΈπŸ’™ Lovey and Mike

Speaking of possums we had to escort one from our garage last night, that could be why I'm seeing possums😁

We met before that my friend, but we brought Lovey into the Fab Four around that time! You had hair then!!!πŸ˜‚

I already know I'm going to love it it looks like the red door series πŸ™‚

Hi, I'll be late tomorrow and Cathy won't be there, poor girl is sick again

Thanks for the great advice see ya next week

I love it thanks for the great info and a great demo Don

G’day Lennox!!! A little bird told me you are doing very well at school!!! Proud of you, mate!!!

I just love watching an expert using my favourite medium

I have picked up some good advice thank you

That does look like one of the Royal Carribean paintings you did years ago

I wish could still go to your classes on Wednesdays πŸ˜₯

Wow never knew that about the oil paintings Don. Thanks for the information

I'm going to try some of this colour and charcoal

Hi Emma hi Don and yes charcoal is great

You came into our life during the red door series, Don and Mag!!

I can see a big lip with teeth in top right

I used charcoal on canvas last night under acrylic

I just draw and erase and draw and erase

Don have you ever written a book or have dvds

It's going to be good anyway cause it's in charcoal

Check out those pins!!! How could a raw blooded male trade you in?!?!!

You looked awesome in it Lennox!

Love the red door series

Yes it's great charity and there is auction on insta, I have donated and lots of other artists paintings will be sold all money going to flood victims via Giveit

Hi Arts Edge crew if y’all drinking and watching!

Like a lightening struck tree but bet it’s gonna be a cool treehouse

Gasoline here. From the quote”I’m just here for the gasoline “

My art teacher used to say interesting

I'm always with you mate what did ya think of my charcoal painting

So he can never tell when he’s in trouble Lennox all the way

Aww you could put a lil tree looking up at it

Tree parking only…all others will be toed

Hey don! Hope you are well! Will bring a good drop over soon ❀️

Obviously you have something in mind tonight Don?

Signs saying keep your toes off the grass

Glad you back bright and happy Emma

It was beautiful now yogi bear appears

I like the snow down the bottom !

Absinthe makes the heart grow fonder !

Hiya guys... Just tuned in! Youre making me thirsty already πŸ˜‚ 🍻

A heavy heart tonight as more rain pours down on communities already scrambling from the prior rain event.

I also was taught by an artist never to touch black but to reach for paynes grey as an alternative

The elephant has disappeared, great colours in the sky πŸ’œ

Can you show us an example of your new style or do I need to fly to Perth ?

You make it look so easy wow ! πŸ‘Œ love the beautiful colours 😍

Jacobs Well has always been prone to isolation.

So an element of self preservation with Merrilee

We’ve had 570 ml of rain at our -lace

Great high and dry. Wet horses though.

Waterfall in the making

Hi Emma and Don, my prints are up , so big I have a broken shoulder putting them there. But I love them

Well I have been asked to get Don to give our group at Coochie a price for workshop on coochie or a create consume maybe at the Cafe? Should I talk to you Emma

Havent seen this from you before Don. Coming our way soon i see, when is it.

Pretty sure it is 22022022, or 22222. In digital it can be read as upside down as well as being a palindrome

Love it- absolutely want to be at the beach right now!

Love the brightness and colour, truly a summer's day in Qld😎

The reason I love it is because even through A picture and not the original in front of us it captures movement and the atmosphere of the beach and the people. Extraordinary artist to say the least. Ax

Omg I've just tuned in, sorry late home, hello Don and Emma

Hmmmmm i can't remember but I had a couple so I may or may not have noticed

It now looks like a ventriloquist with their doll on their shoulder. I guess it’s love if it’s a puppet. A different kind of love. (Ben)

Put a beard on it and we will know who it is

I can see it! Definitely a warrior, exhausted propping themself on the spear. Yet, I see a woman not a male.

Set up a camera facing Don while he paints so we can see his tongue ! Hahahhaha

Hello from Benjamin. Happy birthday Darren!

Great stuff Don very you

Ugle couple so it must be love

The red looks like a back end of a deer

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder!

Hi Don, we found it..Linda and Bev.

Is it for valentine's day next week

Mother and daughter with red hair

Wed tomorrow or a week or March .............

May be they just had a kiss

Looks like something from the inside

More straight on would be good emma

Going great Don

I missed the start xx

Oh that's fantastic!

It was fabulous

I reckon they’re babushka dolls (Ben)

Everybody needs love

I know where your coming from Don
