This is the first painting in my “Rage Painting” series in which I painted a blue peony in fast, aggressive strokes. In each painting I chose to use a very limited pallet and just using the white of the canvas, light washes, and thick layers of paint to achieve the tonal values.
Very little planning was involved in creating these pieces. Although the person or situation that inspired the rage will remain a mystery to the viewer, rest assured they are “dealt” with mentally via hypothetical conversations (and generally just fantasizing about telling that person off). The goal is to turn those negative feelings into something beautiful.
THIS IS TOTALLY NORMAL AND HEALTHY!
While the original is still for sale, high quality Giclée prints are available here.
Another perk, our side yard:
These photos are from the jungle we had outside the house we had rented. I’d say with all the problems we had in that house, the jungle was the least of our concerns.
My brain is tired.
I’ll just go ahead and post some of the pictures and take a well-overdue nap. -_-
I finally had time to go through my external drive and copy over photos to re-edit in a higher resolution (i.e. bigger, clearer). That pretty much means going through and finding all the originals, resizing them, touching up (if necessary), and putting borders as close as I could to the edits I had uploaded years ago.
I’ve edited one, so far. Only 1,599 to go!
I cleverly also uploaded a second version (cropped), so instantly I have two photos instead of just one! HOW AWESOME AM I!?
**Answer: Pretty awesome.**
