Next subject for painting
It really doesn't take allot of effort on my part to understand why. The world we see in the news is just so evil (for lack of a better word). You hear stories about war, children being abducted, political lines becoming chasms; road rage and selfish attitudes are everywhere. I just come home wanting to take a shower to wash all the dirt off. So the new painting will be about much more than just a glass of clover flowers. The challenge will be what can I manipulate in the painting to make more of a statement about innocence. Even though we are exposed to allot of dirt and yes create allot of dirt of our own I believe one of God’s gift to us is to allow Him to make us clean again. That’s what this painting is really going to be about…if it ever gets finished.
Not to ignore the practical side this will also be an exercise in technique God knows I need the practice. Here's hoping I finish another painting soon.
P.S. the photo is mine I shot it on my desk at work.
