Hey you guys!!
So, this is a painting I did in 2015.
I was happy with it.
Well.....that is to say, I was mostly happy with it. Often times, I run my ideas past my closest friends and advisors - just to make sure that it is something THEY would want. For the most part it helps keep my work with a succinct theme and flava. (YES! I JUST USED THE WORD FLAVA!!! ;-)
Here is a post I did on my old blog about this particular painting...
CHECK IT OUT...
But this painting is NOT what I wanted it to be about.
I wanted it to be about appreciating Kensington Market, and celebrating it's reputation! I also wanted it to be kinda funny.
It is not.
So....this week I one back to the drawing board on this guy....and came up with this......
I LOVE it. I think it is funny. I think it tells the story that I want to tell the FIRST time i painted it. Kensington Market: it is extraordinary STILL.....and there is so much to see/do/buy there!
(Including fruit and weed!)
The lesson here is, that maybe you should always go with your gut.
OR maybe the lesson here is, it is never too late to change???
OR maybe it is just okay to say that NOTHING is carved in stone FOREVER!(or in this case painted in acrylic) So be open to the possibilities!
I dunno....maybe it's ALL THOSE THINGS?
What say you???
Have a great week y'all!!!!
