Finally, more art disgorged

Festive Petulance (self portrait)
Festive Petulance (self portrait), acrylic, 8" X 10"

Last night, I finally decided that this sucker was done and I slapped my signature on it. I've been working on it since June (this one and the companion to the Whore Clown, but he's not done yet). This is the closest to realistic I've ever tried to paint; I just wish the colors showed better in the photo than they do (and also that you could see texture). But I figured, if I screwed up a self portrait, only I could be offended by it!

Now it's back to the clown portraits, I reckon. If you need me, I'll be squeezing into a tiny car with about 15 other clowns, er, artists.

11 of you felt the overwhelming need to say somethin':

*giggling over Susie's comment on Flickr*

*overlooking his hatred of Flickr whilst still giggling*

*wonders what part of Bucky's home has that blast of upward shooting and colorful light*

Yeah, the color really didn't come through properly, did it? But it's cool!

I love this, but I want to see (your version) of Friday or Thirteen's self portrait. Then we get creativity AND puddies all at once!

Uhm, yeah, can you tell I've been too long without my own cats?

Thanks, everybody!

And I'm sure the cat portraits will happen eventually. You can pretty much bank on that! :)
