" happiness ............... is a warm gun "
/ the beatles
painted on a repurposed piece of wood that was taken from a construction site where an old building was being torn down, i like the look of street art that has layers of paint with textures underneath from years of painting so i painted several layers to get a slight uneven texture that you can see at the right angle, the board is also a little asymetrical, the top rght corner is 3/4" longer than the bottom right which which gives it a little bit of an angle on that side, thats how i found it and i think it adds character, the gun is a true american icon that can be used for good and bad,
thank you for looking
i paint whenever i find any type of free canvas to paint , such as wood or plywood , its really sturdy and actually feels like something when you hold it , alot of times i paint several layers before the top coat because i want it to look like a piece of wall that was painted over for decades , thats what gives it charactet to me, i am color blind so how i see my work will look different for you , i paint how i feel at that particular momment in time, sometimes looking at the work days later will invoke the same feelings, "hanging around, nothing to do but frown, rainy days and mondays always get me down" / the carpenters thank you for looking
