Art appearing in Times Square exhibit

Apropos of absolutely nothing but I need to crow a bit; one of my paintings -when I was still able to paint -has been accepted into a collage evxibitbwhich will appear in Times Square. I'm a bit dazed - while trying to act like it's totally cool, happens to me sell the tine ((OMG TIMES SQUARE!!!1one!)).

When I have a link of the exhibit I will put it up. Just had to crow a bit....(did Iz say that? Sorry I am still a bit gobsmacked)

If that were me, I'd be crowing too! Even aside from anything else, it's an amazing achievement. But it's also a way of reminding yourself and the world that you are not only defined by your condition. Here's to holding on to the essence of us.

"briar rose girl" -the biggest piece, and the one I like best, truthfully; girl enshrouded in roses with the bear skull beside her

It's very detailed. I like how it draws you in. I could ponder it all day! Congratulations!

I like it, interesting concept, why the bear? I like the others too, particularly the cherry girl.

*dons hipster artist beret* the bear hibernates for five months of the year! which is a form of sleeping death tying into the piece as a whole. *flings beret to the horizon* but mostly I had never tried painting bone before and I found a really cool reference image, so bear it was.

I suppose I should say something mindbogglingly convoluted but mostly my work comes down to It Seemed Like A Good Idea At The Time.

The skull reminded me of a piece of Renaissance art called 'The Ambassadors' by Holbein. It's also full of imagery. Could spend a long time studying it as well...

Good! I love images which cram details into them, every time, seeing something new. It's what I am for, never seeing the same image twice.
