So...I have been painting again. And it makes me so happy. I've been inspired by Michelle Sullivan, Anthony Caruso, and Dean Grasso. Also, my mom who keeps telling me I should try to sell my paintings. So, you're probably curious to know...what is "Lonely Man" about?
Every now and then I give my friends challenges to help motivate them and me. I've done this with writing friends, so I thought maybe I might do the same with my art friends. So, I reached out to Dean and proposed me paint the same theme, then vote on whose art worked better. I told him to choose the first subject, and he said he'd wanted to do a painting based on "lonely man." Okay, I could do that. So, I spent the next few hours painting. I found a photo on Pinterest that I thought worked, then I added my own spin to it with colors that I thought fit the emotion of what I was going for.
Very happy with it. Not perfect by any means, but I haven't painted a person in acrylics in over ten years, so I really thought I did a decent job. Dean also created an amazing painting, completely different from mine. I love how artists have their own interpretations of subject matter. I felt we definitely tied in this spirited competition.
I'm looking forward to creating more art. I'll be putting them up on my art page soon.
