Welcome to the new mitchmen blog

Welcome to mitchmen, home of Mitchell's Art.

I only post occasionally here but in the sidebar you can connect to my two principal sites - my blog (where I talk about my work and pay tribute to artists who excite me) and my Yahoo! Group (where you can join my mailing list, read my stories and see my latest pictures).


There's also a link to a small gallery of my work here (last updated Aug 2016).
If you have problems with the link read this notice.

hank you for your interest and support.

Belted Trunks

 
Swimming Trunks with belts incorporated into them have always hit my button. It's one of those incongruous combinations that makes the mind grope for an explanation. In the days before lycra and water repellent fabrics they actually served a purpose - preventing wet cotton and flannel trunks from sagging under the weight of water to an immodest degree. With modern fabrics the ubiquitous drawstring is man enough to fulfil the same role, but belts provide a showy fashion alternative.
