Thought I would share one of my paintings recently completed. This is my first official painting on stretched canvas. This paintings started as a complete disaster to tell you the truth. I decided it would be fun to work with fabric because I love funky, colorful fabric, but....adhering it to the canvas without having any bubbles underneath wasn't easy. I had to cut the shape out about 3 times to get it right, thank goodness I bought extra fabric! It did turn out good in the end, but was a challenge. ....Amanda T.
Another new painting up for sale, all 3 paintings I posted last week have sold, thank you for your interest! This one is titled "Uncivilized" and the text reads "Civilisation is just a veneer, Baby." Thanks for looking and let me know what you think or if you have any questions....
Monday. Well, here is a new painting I finished this weekend. It's called "Good and Bad". It's a simple lowbrow devil theme using a cliche that I heard a grizzled dude saying. I remember thinking it didn't make much sense when this dude utttered the phrase . I mean come on. Phrases like this stick in my head forever and drive me to the brink of madness. I find that people talk in phrases like this. For them it's a way to dismiss the seriousness of the situation. I guess it might be a defense mechanism that allows regular folks to just keep on getting the job done. Don't think.....work. Just keep on. Don't think about it. That sort of nonsense. I'd rather folks thought about things and allowed some chaos to reign free every once in a while. Now I'm not advocating school shootings or violence in any way. I think people should just do nothing. That's right. In a world dripping with violence and chaos, sometimes the best way to fight is to simply stop and sit down. Go out into a field and look at a bug. Go to a creek and find a crayfish. When was the last time you did that? Yeah man.....quit your stupid job. It's a sham anyhow. Smell the roses. (I better stop before I turn into a dreaded hippie). I can feel my hair growing already.
