My Gods, what the frak have I been doing this year!? Apparently watching and playing too much Battlestar Galactica for one. I’ve been meaning to share these two paintings, which I’ve just listed on Etsy, for an eon so without further ado.
This piece is very much a storybook scene I painted for grown-ups. Just between you and me, I suspect the little fisherthing is wearing its pants on its head. I can’t be sure
It is unclear where or when they are but I do know what they are: flotsam. Un-required, driftless, and utterly useless. Happily though, they also possess a boundless supply of great internal merriment.
I created “Flotsam” for a local (heehee, it’s still funny being a “local” of somewhere) competition. I didn’t win, which I was surprisingly un-moved by; I think because my heart wasn’t in it. We had to work in black and white which I found pretty uninspiring and the winner had their work printed on t-shirts, which I wasn’t crazy about.
Actually, I’ve been struggling all year with not knowing where I want to take my art. But that’s a whole ‘nother blog post!
