|A Single Tear|
I have posted this painting before, in fact immediately after it was painted in 2015. I looked at it with fresh eyes on Saturday night and went Holy Crapola!!!!! I painted that. What made me have this thought? I was looking at some paintings on Facebook and thought how beautiful they were and wished I could paint something like that. I looked up at the painting over my chair in the living room and did a double take. I HAD painted a painting like that. I had dug deep and found this painting lurking side.
I was amazed and at the same time a little ticked. Amazed because I get the same feeling today that I did in September of 2015 and ticked because once again I wished for something I have already done and not really appreciated. This photo makes it look bright; however, hanging on the wall it is haunting. The lighting in the room makes the face recede significantly so you see it faintly in this black fog. I really think that as the paint cured over time (man, I sound professional here) the painting darkened which is the effect I wanted.
When I first started this journey I would not display my work, now it is hanging on my walls. All I can say is Holy Crapola, Batman.
see you tomorrow.
