Rory Paddle

Acrylic on vintage totem tennis paddle.

I started painting table tennis paddles and bats after I received a random box of vintage ones from Ms Pene Durston of Cottage Industry in Melbourne.  Ms Pen and I have since become friends (there are few people more knowledgable and generous than her), and the paddles have become one of my most popular painted items.

This particular one was exhibited at Sager Braudis Gallery in the United States.  It has since sold.

I still paint bats and paddles from time to time, but they sell out quickly.  I usually let people know via my Instagram page when there is a new set of them in my Etsy shop.
