I finished one of these and did the other yesterday. It is cathartic to me to paint away the things we all have that weigh us down. The one with the blood some would see as very gory I see it as strength. To me it is all about being strong enough to do what you say and be who you want to be.
The second painting was more of a comical painting based on my love for civil disobedience from time to time. I was ready a story of a abused woman and it just came to me. These paintings may offend or may crack you up but if they touch you in some way and you feel or think about some thing you might not normally then they are doing their job.
Have a great day you all.
