This painting was an idea that came from the painting titled, Unbecoming. I wanted to create a more convincing face in this piece. The lines are connected from top to bottom, left to right and it took me a while to realize that by using this method I would be successful in the outcome.
The face, that I hope you see, was created as I painted. I pushed and pulled with highlights and darker tones until the right shapes began to come out. The mouth area was a surprise to me to be as simple as it turned out. I like the expression the face gives as well.
I mixed the paint, including the black, with many colors to bring out a dynamic range of tones once i started to highlight them. Although the photo doesn't bring out the life of this work it does bring out the concept.
Without commitment I write the following. I like to paint. I like to draw. I like to sculpt. I like to fix and create things.
Art is the only thing in my life that I don't have to take seriously. It comes from within and I don't argue with it. The meanings or influences that go into my painting although they are my own are easily translated by viewers from their perspective.
I have a lot of irons in the fire which is an expression meaning that I have a lot going on in my life. I build websites for companies and work from home. I have no children, I'm not married, I'm surrounded by cats, dogs and horses. I always find time to paint because I'd rather be doing that anyway.
A year or more ago I gave birth to a painting using 3 point perspective. It is titled Absolute Uncertainty. It is my member gallery but take a look at all of the developing photos, close ups and flash presentation on how to properly use 3 point perspective. I receive emails from all over the world on how cool this is, so I point to you this shining star.
Appreciate all you have in your heart and love the people around you. Dave
