a mess ‘o roses

May 22, 2016

Once begun there was no going back!  The thing turned into a heap of black and red and I couldn’t get out of it so just continued by adding squiggles.  They say  nothing is a waste of time if you learned something…yeah, I can’t paint roses…I need a coffee…now that I see it in a photo, they […]

This is probably my final from this set…clouds are beginning to look the way I want them to.  The bottom portion of the painting depicts a tangled mess of random growth on the left and is to represent the wind coming in and lifting and tossing lighter bits to the right – It’s happier when […]

Zebra Mouth• I guess you will find this painting a bit odd, not to me though.  It represents the phenom of self mutilation for “beauty”.  Plump up your lips, even though your face is covered in lines…I don’t know, would a zebra do this?  This painting has been accepted into a new home. 12″ x 12″ acrylic […]

Twice Warned

Twice Warned This is pretty obvious I guess, but if it isn’t…I was thinking about the “road of life” and how there are signs and warnings all along the way that we ignore unless they are glittery. The double yellow line represents, don’t go there…really. 8″ x 8″ acrylic on canvas click on image to enlarge
