Hey there all! Just got around to uploading some new pictures. These are bigger paintings and they were painted, within the last month. Paints used? Pebeo, Winsor and Newton, M Graham and Richeson. I believe anyway.
This first one is landscape of a field with barns obviously. Originally, I was going for something entirely different. What the heck, right? I threw some crows into the painting and went with it. In the end, I reckon it looks pretty good and has a bit of atmosphere to it. The picture really doesn't do it justice and I really need to invest in a better camera.
For the bottom painting, well, it should speak for itself. With all of the political shenanigans going on, it is hard not to get into the mood, isn't it? I wouldn't necessarily consider myself to be a political individual, since I can barely stand listening to any of the politicians speak for more than five minutes.
I do keep up with the latest ongoings though and watch C-Span regularly. Since Comcast hasn't been friendly with me recently, I only get Al-Jaazera. I suppose this is a good thing, since it prevents me from being brainwashed by CNN and Fox News.
Anyway, the painting features the only current presidential candidate that I sympathize with on the majority of the issues, Rand Paul. Low in the polls? Check! Outsider? Check! Different from the rest? Check! I can be categorized similarly, so all is good.
With the GOP debate tomorrow, we can only hope Paul energizes the crowd and voters. If it doesn't, I am not sure the future holds anything substantially different from what we have today. Anyway, another day, another dollar. Cheers all.
