Another quick portrait on the music sheets. :-)
Acrylic on paper, for those who are wondering.
This is Red Skelton - an American comedian.
We used to watch him on tv when i was younger & he would crack us up.
My father thought he was the best comedian in the world. :-)
As you can see, when i do these portraits, i do them rather quickly and usually with a thick brush.
You already all know i never strive for perfection, but rather, for emotion, or for a feeling...
It really takes little detail to convey a certain emotion, doesn't it?
And of course, colour helps.
In this case, loud bright colours. Like the man himself.
If you don't know Red Skelton, google him.
I think he was a genius comedian.
Like another one i watched last night on the comedy channel.
I can hear everyone start complaining already about how many times he used the "F" word,
but i couldn't give a rat's ass what words he used -
only that he made me laugh like a lunatic.
So much that my stomach hurt. :-)
We care far too much about profanity and not enough about
what people are saying, and why they are saying it.
We have religious leaders who look down on profanity,
but don't think twice about sexually abusing children.
That's what i say.
So this is what i'm tackling today...
the mess in my little blue room...
Unless of course, winter calls for me to go for a nice long walk on the beach...
Happy day everyone!
