My Painting Experiment
This was a painting that my mom had did years ago. I always loved it and was overjoyed when she let me have it when they moved to Las Vegas. Admittedly, it was never hung up due to its size and the lack of wall space in my old house. Along with that, it had a very dark subject matter. It was during a very dark time for my mom and so the subject matter was very dark and sinister. Afterall it included the statue "Rape of the Sabine Woman", a bathroom scene and a book entitled "Sinner's Guide" placed on the back of the toilet!!! I loved it as I do all of mom's work but it was kind of depressing and I really wanted to hang it in my new house but felt that the only place it would work was in one of my bathrooms not only because of the content but also because the colors matched perfectly. Unfortunately, it wouldn't fit in my bathroom. So I decided, with her permission, if I could revamp the painting and this is what I've come up with thus far.
Oh, btw,I know I said I was gonna talk about aliens but that'll have to wait.
