Royal Typewriter in Progress

 

I haven’t shared anything on my blog in a few weeks because I’m knee deep in several complex paintings. I don’t know how some people have the time to share so much on social media. Every time I decide I should post on Instagram or Facebook it seems to take way longer than anticipated. I’d rather be painting.

Corona & Royal Typewriters

Typewriters are all about ideas and writing. They seem to spark the act, I think it’s because of the physicality of them. They make this amazing noise, your words literally express themselves vocally as you tap away at the keys. You have to immediately concentrate, your whole mind and body becomes involved. You focus.

These two typewriters are a great contrast to one another – the Corona with its sleek black curves and stately design, the Royal with its crisp blue and modern edges.

I have these typewriters in my collection, and when they’re out of their cases they invite anyone around to sit down and type.

Both of these typewriters were found at Everything Old – an antique store in Brentwood Bay on Vancouver Island.
