a quick outline...
...add some browns
and black & blue.
I heard something on the news last night that inspired this painting.
Michael Jackson supposedly kept motivational tapes under his pillow.
The tapes are reported as giving messages like "you are a good person" and "you are worthy"...
The whole thing just made me sad.
The idea that he still needed someone - a stranger on a tape - to tell him that he was "good"
made me think that he must have felt such emptiness inside.
Michael has been described as the king of pop, a pedophile, an addict,
and a musical genius.
Maybe he was all of these things, but whenever i see him, i just see suffering.
Those eyes were definitely suffering eyes, regardless of how much his body was dancing.
