I am a painter, an old painter, an experienced painter, a highly qualified artist, and yet I am making illustations of celebrities… lol… what?!?
I’m in an emotional mood this morning… a creative mood… a destructive mood… and from the ashes of death and destruction rises this phoenix…
Started this piece in the usual way but, I don’t know, something inside me pushed and pulled me hither and thither and I was forced to attack the canvas and with gusto… is that the word?
It looks good to me. It looks like a painting, not a weakly, sickly, half-copy of a photo!
12 x 16″
Also, a digitally tweaked / modified version of what I regard as the best, perhaps the only, painting I’ve done in a long while!
