This is actually a painting I completed a few months back for a local art gallery which holds an annual "24 hour Blitz", where they give you a theme and you have 24 hours to create a work around that idea. It's definitely one of my most proudest/favourite pieces, because it's the painting that started taking my watercolour work in a slightly different direction. Hooray! (P.S, I made this piece my new icon/logo, whaddya think?)

So anyway, this years theme, was under "Fusion".

It's inspired by the idea of the whole nature vs. mankind discussion and about origins. To compare any animal or creature, for example, fish, we are so extremely and obviously different, but we are under the same sky, sharing that same ocean. We might live in the ocean, the land or sky. We may even talk, make noises, or make none at all. We may have limbs and arms, fins, or even wings.

We're from Two different worlds, but we share one Ocean.

SHOWS ORIGINALITY ,THOUGH ,AND... DARK RAW ENERGY. MULTI LEVAL TALENT . A CONNECTION TO THE BEAST. ,THE KIND I ADMIRE, :PROVOCATIVE .I LIKE IT WHEN I HAVE TO ASK MYSELF ,WHAT WAS THE ARTIST THINKING,WHAT KIND OF PERSON IS THE CREATOR ?AND
THE BIGGEST QUESTION . **** WHO OR WHAT, EVENT ,SITUATION OR MISINTERPRETED GLANCE, INSPIRED THIS ARTIST TO EXPRESS THERE VISION, IN THE WAY, THAT IT SHOWS, IN THIS PIECE.? IS IT AS SIMPLE AS AN ABSTRACTED REMIX PROJECT ?OR A MIRROR IMAGE ,A SELF PORTRAIT OF SORTS. MAYBE MORE ?.DARKER, A DEEPER LEVEL OF FRAGILITY LEFT UNATTENDED ,POSSIBLY DAMAGED ,A DISTURBED SOUL, POSSIBLY MUCH MORE THAN PERCEIVED AT FIRST GLANCE .*AND SOUP FOR THOUGHT*, WILL THE ARTIST CONTINUE,TO USE ART AS A SELF CONTROL METHOD? A WAY TO RELEASE THE THE FRUSTRATION OF LIFE'S DISAPPOINTMENT? TO SILENCE THE SCREAMS OF HIS OR HER EMOTIONAL INSTABILITIES ? IS IT A WARNING TO THE SUBJECT . A KIND OF SELF ADMINISTERED THERAPY ? MAYBE MAYBE NOT. MAYBE EVERYTHING MAYBE NOTHING. THO ,WE MIGHT WANT TO HOPE THAT IT'S JUST A WORK OF ART.

I periodically come back to look at this painting because I love it so much. The fluidity of color, how you just let the color and pigment do their thing, the mixture of media....I love it all. so thanks for making art that inspires me to become better.
