Happyness Is a Warm Gun

Well I bet your expecting me to post some amazing art.....

pfft. nope. I'm posting this crap.....
I'm struggling right now both physically and emotionally and I'm having trouble finding a path to follow artisticly. I havent abandoned the Ladies I plan to paint but I'm having a hard time with other things too. 

Right now my health is so bad that if I can get up out of bed and do really anything its amazing. I'm struggling to get home work done for classes and take exams and everything so its like take it one accomplishment at a time. I was really shocked when I was able to sit down and paint at all let alone paint what I did. Its not one of my amazing pieces that I would hang in a gallery but I'm not a ball of pain on the kitchen floor crying like I was earlyer. 

Lovely intro huh? remember the normal things, I just painted it so the oil paint is still wet and giving you a glare. And remember that this is a larger canvas. about two feet to 3 feet. I think it looks better in person because of the scale.

I was inspired to title it "Happyness is a warm gun" 

And to explain that heres the other thing I made. Its been sitting in the "make me" pile for over a year and a half or more.... so I'm proud of  myself for getting up and getting it done. I've been also working on poor Monet doll whos been waiting for clothing for a very long time.

Not much to look at. But it kind of fits in to the reason I named the other one I did. 

Yeah. So thats it realy. Please forgive my grumpyness as I'm not feeling very well right now.

Your welcome to comment. doesnt mater to me. I already think it sucks so you can't hurt my feelings really... 

I need to lay back down.

I don't think the painting is bad at all. It's different from your usual work, but I personally really really LOVE the colours. They work and flow perfectly together and give the painting just that extra nudge :)

Hope you feel better soon, hun! *hugs*

This is very different from your other work. Definitely see the influenece of impressionism ( Van Gogh comes to mind) here, the use of light/dark. I really like the energy created in how you handled the oil paint. Now the figure interests me. It looks like an ant to me. I am reading it as a small creature caught up in a whirlwind imho. I see this as beginning for exploration.

I think it looks great. The colors and textures are so expressive.
