The butterfly painting is done.
I finished it rather quickly - which is sometimes how it goes
for certain paintings.
Two weekends ago, there was an accident near here.
A young man was killed (18 years young) and he loved butterflies.
His mother said that she would think of him always,
especially when she saw a butterfly.
I painted this for her, and for him,
although i now question whether it'll help or hinder her healing.
I guess she can always hide it somewhere if it's too painful.
One never knows much what to do with such suffering...
These photos are not the greatest... (no natural light)
I've painted a few paintings like this one,
the kind that just seem to pour out of me.
They're usually done with intense energy and a controlled urgency
and although i don't much believe in angels,
whenever this happens so quickly,
it always moves me.
I only hope Nic's mom likes it...
And something that makes me smile...
I love Mark Twain's sense of humor and intelligence.
Don't we all know someone with 2 university degrees up their ass
and the common sense of a pea? ;-)
No offense to those of you who have 2 university degrees.
If you're reading my blog, you're already intelligent enough.
I also finished the boat painting a while ago.
I'm only posting this one close up,
since you're probably all so fucking tired of seeing it by now.
Notice the little Acadian flag up there... :-)
By the way, i've been getting so many bogus anonymous comments on my blog (usually advertising Viagra, Levitra, Valium, etc), I'm seriously considering setting up the word verification thing. But i really hate that word verification thing. Do any of you know of any other way to rid ourselves of these anonymous advertisers?
If only they knew how much i don't need Viagra... :-)
I've had very little time lately to comment on your blogs.
Please know that i'll be back soon. Can't wait to see what you've all been up to.
