Ready to Hang
Take a trip into another reality with this mixed-media Caterpillar! It's a tribute to the curiously strange that can come about on a rainy day, as much as consideration of what life could have been like if evolution happened differently. The walking plant is primarily matte acrylic with a bit of red nail polish to make the stems glisten in the light. The Caterpillar itself is made of a combination of painted & glued sand, parot feathers, parokeet feathers, rose petals, and sea-oats. Overlaying both subjects are the light-blue metalic drips of a sticky rain, It's a textural and visual wonderland glimpsing into another reality. (No birds where harmed in the making of this painting!)
Avant-garde. Analyst. Artist. Naturist Kid Carpenter turned teen labor machine, doing all kinds of things on a core quest, to test, the possibilities of my capabilities long before I ever realize and hypothesized the drive to be evolution. The need to evolve. Resolve of adulthood has shown I've grown the most in my own reflection; taking direction from the simple value, always holding true, to "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you," the coo before the command, "Lead by example." Ample opportunity I didn't quite take until now, 2017, I'm coming back with a pow!
