Oil on Canvas

This painting is the product of my frustration with a surreal painting that I was doing for just about the longest time. It was a painting with a house of sorts that had a face and a man curled up in the upper left window. On the roof, were two bugs -- one with the head of a dog...just like the dream that I had over a year ago. I had been working off and on for the past year on the relatively small canvas when finally I just lost all inspiration to go forward. Rather than trudge on and finish just because I had started, I decided to forget the surreal project altogether. I decided to just let my insides guide me as I covered up all the work I had done and when I finished a few days later, I was very happy. I used a lot of paint and a pallet knife. I also used rubber bands and the plastic ants that I had received in the mail in the middle of the process (perfect timing). I realize that the plasitc ants are difficult to make out on the screen so I have posted some close ups of the ants to accompany the painting. They are located on the far left in a dark area, on the upper right in a dark area, in the lower right next to the yellow arc, and at the bottom in a dark area. The yellow magnetic letter "F" is one that I found while I was shopping for a sofa. What a find! Please enjoy the painting.

Feel free to copy and paste it on your site but do me a favor and let me know so I can see it. I'd be flattered.

Handmade Hole II

Similar to Handmade Hole but darker in color and appearance. The two were recently on display at Runway Boutique in Los Angeles. People were surprisingly receptive to the emotion associated with the piece. Please feel free to take a closer look.
