My General Electric Six Transistor Radio

6"x4" oil on raymar panel Whilst I love my little radio, in reality, it is not so… intense. It is more of a subtly refined sophisticate. Me? Reality terrifies me and I am so far away from being sophisticated that it's pitiful. Good thing the radio is inanimate, because if it could, it would have surely walked out on me by now.   Painting a subject like this really brings out the "let's throw the palette at the thing and see what sticks" mentality in me. It is just such a great format to push back and forth with my warms and my cools and test the intensities of my pigments (or rather my willingness to accept those intensities). Remember—reality terrifies me anyway.
