So lately I have been trying to do some things that are outside of my comfort zone...artistically. I have been experimenting with some new subject matter, and I have been creating art for a number of juried art calls....
I WOULD LOVE to tell you that it is going wonderfully....so far I am feeling a bit dejected by the process of entering - getting juried - and being found 'unworthy'.....
READ THIS POST to understand my feeling on that....
BUT then the final paintings are turning out so well!!!
This one is a fine example.
I painted it for a call entitled "Live Longer, Piss off Your Heirs".
I think it is really good...here is how I describe it:
For many years I thought living longer was the object of the game. Now, as I steadily roll into middle age, I disagree. I now think the name of the game is to do it your own way, and love your life fully! This sentiment is reflected in my personal life and with my art! This brand new painting “One Hundred Vices” is clearly about the things that aren’t supposed to make life better……but do. Smoking, drinking, eating, looking needlessly glamorous….if that isn’t living life……I DO NOT KNOW what is.
So, there ya go....here is how it came together....and then the final image!
I think this piece is excellent.....look how wonderful it WOULD look in this room...now imagine it for YOUR room!!!!!!!
Have a great weekend and a Happy St Patrick's Day!!!
