I HATE THIS PIECE. It represents pain I felt when two of my best friends had a spat. I doubt they realize it, but I was being trampled by their feud. So I had to get rid of the negativity and I painted this, I hated every minute of it, which is why I didn't spend any time on it. But it had to be done
Michael Skalka is an expert on painting materials and what not. He came to my class to shed knowledge on painting material and how to increase the longevity of a painting. It was insightful, but rather dry, so I sketched him a bunch of times and painted it yesterday. again, I really had no plan when I got to the coloring stage, so that's something I need to work on, but it's a fun piece.
I'm at a point in my life / "career" lol where I'm changing into something different. I'm going to do things differently and live differently, to channel everything around me into my art and to live a life I can be proud of. this piece was just really me experimenting with concepts and media, and that's how I plan to live until I find the right mixtures, until I'm find myself in a better place than I am now. It's difficult for me to put into words, but I know what I'm talking about, you'll see what I mean in a little bit of time.
