This painting is among many that relate to my adoption. This has a duality concept where a part is happy with the blessed life and the other screams in anguish looking for what might have been.
I used a few different types of applications as this piece developed. The purpose was to differentiate the two characters in the work. I used a soft, almost inbisible yellow for the background and faded it into the water in the background. It stood alone for a while without the bars in front of it and I felt that is was missing something. The two characters in this piece were not relating to each other and I used the bars to connect them.
I enjoyed this piece. It was a special piece from the start. I couldn't understand why until it was close to being finished.
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
