I painted this early this summer, from a photo I liked so much and had to paint it. I usually like to paint from my own phones but I got this off the web. First bird painting I have done, for some time now I have been wanting to paint an owl, so maybe next time? This is oil on canvas 18 x 24.
My support for the animals of this world is expressed in my rhino picture. Apparenlty by osmosis and virtue of my subconscious, I created a work supporting my fellow humans and doing this work, subconsciously… after the fact as the work was done I realized I had made this abstract portal in a strange way showing black lives matter. I suppose in a very strange way.
I was experimenting on canvas with water color and ink and pen, curious to see how ink and pen felt on canvas. Sometimes mediums do not feel well on different surfaces. As it turned out I liked the feeling and concocted this work.
I had forgotten but had seen this picture and had downloaded it to my picture files when I had seen the below photo on the web. As controversy’s go we do seem to live in a violent society, I am not attacking the police here, but the uncanny way this work developed seems to suggest our minds (mine especially) do work in strange ways. I find the visual both compelling and the analogy amusing, I use the world amusing as the photo impacted me in some way?

Have been wanting to paint this for awhile now and I decided to go for it this afternoon, Alla Premia wet on wet for me one sitting painting, so much fun and I am happy with the results, I can further finish it when it drys, but then it is no longer Alla Preima, meaning at first attempt.
This is one I finally finished, actually the real final one and I like it. Had been working on this for some time now. Now that it is framed so sorry for the glare back on the glass.

Okay, I changed my theme, not sure if I like this one any better than the last? My goal is to show my art, so it does not look like it is on display at Wal-Mart. I would like to let people choose categories…you know, so people can go onto my poetry or musing about politics. So I may be changing the theme once again? Any comments or constructive criticism about my theme change will be received with appreciation.
Well, I decided to return home to my old theme, so much for change?
I feel comfortable here, just be nice if people search separate category’s.
Now for the arts…tommorow President George Bush is going to unavail the world to a petdegree of unenlightment, the announcement is, he is going to show the world 19 masterpieces he painted of world leaders? As an artist of ill repute I am looikng forward to seeing his work. Let’s hope his art provides some justice (irony intended) to those great world leaders like…Rush Limbaugh, Newt Gangrich, the Koch brothers and other great world leaders. From what I unerstand, this unavailin will be happening tommorow on the Today Show…on the other hand if you see this message tommorow this would mean you will see the unavailin today on the Today Show unless you happen to be lucky and have an important appointmet to get a hang nail taken care of.
pS: My apology because this is broken noise, I am forced to type this from my phone.
