This piece is of Wednesday, a character from the 1960's sitcom "The Addams Family" The quote is from one of the shows. It's curious how children can see right through us and just say it like it is...and then we grow up:).
David Hinds grew up on a poor river bottom farm during the 60's & 70's. He believes that his creativity was fostered out of necessity on this family farm. Although he didn't start painting until 2015, it was never far from his thoughts. Growing up just down the road from famed folk artist George Colin had left an indelible impression. With the passing of George, David decided that he himself probably wasn't going to get any younger and that just another day was too long not to paint. And so he does, almost every day! David's artwork is whimsical in nature, often calling on his rich childhood memories. Telling a story and making a connection with the viewer is a sought after goal. Working in bold colors with his unique style brings a vibrant energy to each and every piece. Being a self-taught artist David has discovered that at times, some of his best work comes from happy accidents.
