Bruised walls

This is my latest piece.
(not finished, it's the under painting)

I can relate to this piece. I can only hope others can, in one way or another.
 I should've been done with it a week ago. I keep putting it off. It's always hard for me to get in the groove, but once I find it,  I'm pretty much on it. 

I'm hoping the folded arms, the posture, the peeling wallpaper, the exposed plaster tells a story without much other explanation. I think I might add a few little cracks still. Then it will be on to glazing the color on.

This guy and some older pieces will be in a show starting beginning of June. 

On another note, an exciting one at that. We've booked another trip to Desire Cancun for the fall! yay!

I couldn't help but notice that in the photo below, from your last post, you are wearing a black & white striped top, just like the fellow in your painting. AND, on the side, the photo of you with the "cupcake pipe" is also you in a black and white striped shirt. Things that make you go "hmmmm...."

Can't wait to see the finished painting. =)

Yay for vacations!

I do like stripes! How funny. Very observant.
It is kind of a Hmmmmmm, huh? LOL
