Months ago I decided that I was going to take up painting, but like so many other things in my life I didn’t really have time to enjoy this new found love of mine. However this evening I stayed home to finish what I had started… and three hours later TADA!!!! This photo is catching some weird glare… but believe me, up close and in person it would blow your socks off. I don’t know exactly which art museum I am going to call first but I have envisioned it hanging next to American Gothic in Chicago perhaps. Or maybe my Mom would be nice enough to hang it up at her house. For some reason I feel strange hanging something that I painted up in my living room… like “HEY! Look What I did.” Plus I think it doesn’t give people a fair chance to hate it if they so choose to.
SO you might be saying to yourself… what in the world am I looking at? And like many abstract artists that have gone before me I will leave that up to your interpretation, however this piece has deep significance to me.
I think I am probably going to stare at if for a few more minutes and add a few more brush strokes for good measure… but I was just too excited that I had to BLOG it.
