The Disasster

   Well i was working on it yesterday, but its been in the making for a week or two. Infact i painted the deer in the summer just past. Remember thats there is only 2 part days that i go to Magenta to paint each week. I try to add more idea, to put more into it each visit. Actually, i painted it originally as just the deer grazing on a slope somwhere out in the ountryside. I used a roller to paint them and it was a quik rendition. It was a boring subjet to me but i just wanted to see what i could acheive with a roler instead of brushes. Once i completed the deer, i put it with a heap of other insignificant art attempts in the studio to dissappear into obscurity. Then the Fukushima event became a hot topic in my conciousness. I wanted to paint somthing about the disasster. Having seen a Banksy exhibition late last year, i thought id like to try somthing along that style for the catastrophe. Then i glanced at the boring deer painting. And i had a picture of a racing car smash up torn from a magazine ive carried around with me for years. And i thought here is an opportunity to put all these things to gether on this dull deer painting, and i will throw some Fukushima in there too!
                                          I added the skull in the forground after sitting back and just looking at it. It appeared to be there in the grass, so i painted it in more obviously.

I like it. I think art that takes time to sit ends up the best. It's funny how I know all the layers and the stuff under, but the audience only see's what it see's. It makes me think of cars hitting deer, which should be sad,,,but then there are bright colors. I like the contrast. Bravo!

Very interesting my friend!
