This painting/collage took about a week to complete. I worked on it in my spare time, which was mostly during Howard's naps and at night. I listened to an audiobook, Catch 22, by Joseph Heller while making it, which was totally worth my time (I highly recommend).
I've named this piece Holy Roller because there is something about the woman’s face that seems particularly pious to me, and because the raindrop shapes and circles seem to be moving--rolling. That could be why I can’t stop myself from painting these figures into almost all of my work, I love the effect and catch myself staring at it for inappropriate amounts of time. The other thing I like about this piece is that it seems 3D from across the room, and closer up too, but then again that may be because of the staring.
But yeah. Holy Roller is my second paint/collage piece, and I have to admit that I really like it. But I don’t think it’s the kind of work that everyone can appreciate so tell me what you think!=) And thanks for stopping by.
