my new paintings.

Last weekend, I did these 2 paintings for my bedroom:

Photobucket

I wanted something graphic and bold for that wall. I always feel like rooms that are "designed" tend to look too feminine, so I needed something to balance out the light, airy look. I saw this image from Lonny, which was part of my inspiration:

I didn't cover my entire canvases, because they are big, and I didn't want THAT much of a tangley mess.

here it is at night, with the lamps on...

this is my favorite part. I like to do drips on my paintings, for some reason, and so I did a few on these. I love how the drip on this right one stopped right where the circle swoops through. A happy accident.

For some reason, the paintings remind Jordan of this guy:
Photobucket

his name is Graucho Marx, and he was a comedian. Don't ask me how Jordan knows who he is, or really why the paintings inspired Jordan to point this out (other than the glasses, I guess...), but I have named the paintings "Graucho Marx"

The End.

  4. The name is Groucho Marx (not Graucho), and he is one of the master's of the pun. He worked with his brothers, and his comedy is timeless.

  11. Great Artwork! Have you tried printing Photos on Canvas, specifically across multiple canvases? Like a three or four piece print?
