I have owed Barb a painting for quite some time now. The problem with me and painting is that most of the time, I just really don’t want to do it. But then I get these creative (that word is used loosely) spurts, and this current one is mostly thanks to that Castle Blood craft show I did a few weeks ago. Granted, most of those paintings were older ones that I had stowed away, but I did make several new ones and it felt kind of good. So I figured, shit, I better just do Barb’s painting now before my painting muscles atrophy once more.
I wanted Barb’s painting to be personal, so I included a photo of Bill Paxton, for whom she has pretty intense feelings. And I painted this while watching all of the Boston Bombing stuff on CNN, so there is your cultural significance. I guess you could say my paintings pretty much have it all, you guys. (Jokes.)
Anyway, I have a few blank canvases left so I figure I will slather them up with God only knows what and then probably go back into hibernation for a bit. So if you want something, now is your chance to ask! And there are still several older ones left over.
