Art has no plan...


The Twins - mixed media on 8.5x11 canvas


This was absolutely, 100% not what I had planned on creating. In its humble beginning it was a muddy mess that I wasn't sure could be revived. Alas, a little paint here, a little texture there, some random images that came out of nowhere, and viola! The asylum twins emerged from their cell.


It is such a common occurrence that whatever I plan on making never happens. I walk down my path of visions only to end up somewhere completely different. It's not such a bad thing, I suppose. I meet some very interesting characters.

Ooh, I particularly like this one!

Isn't it funny to live through a story like that, that starts out heading in one direction (towards Cleveland, say) and ends up in Ladida-loo-loo Land where everyone is eating cotton candy and laughing uproariously at the giraffes?

Which is so much BETTER than going to Cleveland, anyway.
