Headache, the painting
Last night was a follow-up to a painting that was in my head for a while about war in general. I never liked anything to do with war seeing that I am actually called the “antidrug, one love hippie” as I am pretty much cursed with monogamy. That is another story altogether. My paintings have peace and this was suppose to be about war and my thoughts about it. I painted the canvas gray in a doubling form to pop out any other color placed on it. I painted a bloodied man and crow upon him in abstract but transparent form. Bare in mind that my headache was occuring while doing so. This headache came full circle when I realize that this painting did not have my full expression of what I can do. I preceeded to make a streak of red and then one of white and blended the colors despite making the picture of my painting seem all but gone.
My mind is a roller coaster besides having a headache so this painting began to pain me. I have always been able to adapt to any situation brought upon me so I started to blend colors in this direction and that direction to the point that my painting was a sea of colors in an form of a rainbow effect. I saw a had and a face so I connected the two. My headache was telling my body “help me” so I incorprated those words into the words that the person was saying in the painting. After allof this painting, I said that I had no choice but to call this painting “Headache.” This painting is a mere case of me fighting througha headache and producing quite a momento of some of my earlier artwork. Enjoy the painting even though it pained me.
