This guy at work asked me to do a painting of him and his wife. They volunteer at a haunted house each year and the money raised goes to find a wildlife refuge.
It’s good, you can see their characters in their faces.
You are so talented.
wow, that is quite a painting…really captured the gestures of the haunted clowns.
I hate clowns, but that’s a really nice/dynamic painting! Congrats on the sale!!!
Glad it is well received, thank you @everhopeful, still trying to get the details,
Thank you so much @Ish, it means a lot to me to be able to share this news here after the past few months
Thanx @jukebox, those are creepy masks, but they do help the wildlife refuge so I thought it would be fun to try
And thank you @Hedgehog, your art that I have seen here is inspiring, my wife hates clowns also, so when I ask her what she thinks, she says, I like the colors
Ha! Very diplomatic of her But, really, you capture a great energy! Lots of motion and vitality without being intrusive or aggressive. Very nice!
Thank you so much @Hedgehog, it is good to get feedback, I used to try to have exhibits at galleries but could never tolerate so many people looking at what I did so I always hid during the reception
Then at the college, it became a joke like I was known as the artist with schizophrenia, and it hurt because these were people I thought were my so called friends
I dropped from the art world long ago because creating art helps me deal with all that happens
But I am grateful for this community
Congratulations! It shows a vivid imagination. Very scary. Maybe you could sell your paintings to Stephen King.
Thanx @crimby, Maybe I could sell him one painting for lots and lots and then leave this hotel job, if only, if only…
Oh, wow, we sound similar! During a group show in LA years ago I stayed on the other side of the warehouse literally shaking with my stomach in knots! Before that, I went to the Academy of Art in San Francizco. I was such a suicidal mess that I barely attended classes and finally dropped out second semester. No one called to see where/how I was… What else do you paint? Can you post more?
@Hedgehog yeah that was me also, during receptions I would disappear out back and smoke incessantly, and the gallery owner would get mad at me…were you able to finish your degree?
I only have this iPod with a few of my works on it, we don’t have a computer at home yet…
I can post a few paintings on my iPod, my favorite medium is oil, but right now I do acrylics because I ran out of oils
Subject matter ranges, used to do a lot of woodcuts and made political statements railing against government corruption, did a series about some of my experiences in psych hospitals, a biblical series inspired from reading the prophets, way too many self portraits and sexual crap,
But you would understand, as an artist, we grow and change…
Have you ever destroyed your own work? I have destroyed much of mine at times
@Hedgehog this is an unfinished oil painting started a couple months ago when i guess I had a relapse that has only now with meds and supplements begun to slow
Great! I love it, wouldn’t mind having it

It’s like if the Kiss army dropped a load of acid
