16"x20" oil on canvas. I present to you yet another painting that tried to kill me. With what I am trying to achieve, these 16x20s take a lot out of me. At times, I can be somewhat of an attack painter and once the battle has begun it is hard for me to let go. It's a bit agonizing and I love it. If there wasn't a challenge, what's the point. I guess I shouldn't complain, during the course of the painting, I only required one blood transfusion and I am left with only a slight limp. Anyway... this beautiful old phone resides in our the house. She actually works. Being in California, we use this as a back up land-line phone in case of things like earthquakes and power outages. And, being a Groucho Marx fan, I find it handy for cracking walnuts. • I am sorry to say that this is the only painting I have for your this week. Don't hate me.
P.S. Don't ask about the stripes in the background. I am already seeking therapy for it.
