Painting of Love

"Kiss Me"
6 x 6 inches, Oil on Board
I just read a quote that made me chuckle since I've been painting these little figuratives.
"Every portrait that is painted with feeling is a portrait of the artist, not of the sitter."
--Oscar Wilde
OK....hmmmmm
I once asked Nancy Medina help on writing an artist statement for a show she organized in Flower Mound to benefit the Flower Mound Humane Society. She said I should write "I like painting flowers and things and nekkid people"... LOL

I'm glad to see that someone has artistic talent - I don't!

I have a sculptor friend who felt his statement about a show should have been "He puts on a blindfold and then goes wild with a welder and torch. Anything that didn't burn down is here today."

Thanks for dropping by today.
