The Big Holler, Acrylic on board 36X36

I'm sorry for the photo earlier. This picture is called The Big Holler because sometimes I get so angry or frustrated I want to scream.

I know creative expression has gotten me through some difficult times where I really needed a voice--and it looks as if it's done the same for you. Very, very powerful.

  40. estube apreciando tus pinturas,.veo que te gusta el retrato,.en ellos la particularidad de que muestran su dentadura,.no en una expresion agresiva,.sino mas bien desafiante,.utilizas el azul,.el agua,.cejas gruesas y luminosas,.

    es lo que puedo apreciar en este momento,.

  45. Hola Shelley, gracias por el comentario!
    La idea de meter una cabeza en un frasco me vino por el hecho de que a veces me es muy difícil deshacerme de las cosas, es un poco macabra la presentación, por eso elegí un zombi :)

    Tus cuadros una vez leídos tus comentarios cobran mucho sentido y transmiten muchas cosas, supongo que todos hemos sentido esas emociones alguna vez en nuestra vida, o muchas veces, la sensación de sentirte agobiado, querer acabar toda una mala racha y tener ganas de simplemente gritar y deshacerte de todo lo malo, cuando me pasan cosas así lo que hago es simplemente desaparecer, irme a algún sitio que me transmita paz y pensar detenidamente las cosas para hallarles solución y sobre todo buscarle los puntos positivos a la mala situación, aunque creas que no hay siempre sacas algo bueno.

    En tu caso lo bueno es que puedes desahogarte con la pintura, pintar tus emociones, plasmarlas sobre papel, sentirte mejor y enseñarle al mundo la fuerza y el sentimiento de tu arte, cosa que estaremos de acuerdo, no todo el mundo puede hacer...
    :)
    Me he enrollado un poco la verdad jajajaja
    Es que tu blog me ha hecho pensar en muchas cosas


    Te deseo muchísima suerte y todo lo mejor!
