i made this

Quite a while ago really.
I used all the left over paint that was in the basement of the big house when Mya and I moved in. It took me about six months as I had already started it when we moved.
It's motherfucking huge so be forewarned.
Children and adults see completely different things in the painting, it's kinda cool.


What stops me from painting here in the tower most days is a lack of a surface to paint on.
Though I'd dance with glee if I took the garbage out one day and discovered a million tins of different colours of different kinds of paint. What rational woman wouldn't?
The walls are tempting but naughty, I can't take them with me and I'd so ruin the carpets in the process. Been there done that, still have the paintings in my stupid head. >:D So mebbe not.
I've never been able to take a half decent pick of it before because it's behind the bathroom door in my bedroom, sortof a mini hallway place.
I climbed in the closet to take the picture, woo go me.
No I'm not asleep, but my house is relatively tidy for my house. :)
I miss watashi_no_desu :*( , her voice post inspired me to move stuff around and tidy my face off today.

Wow that is a huge and interesting painting. I see lots of things going on in it. And I can't imagine what the children see.

It took me six months to complete total and I was absolutely absorbed in it most of that time.
It's called "The secret garden reveiled through a raw shark test."
The name is a riddle of sorts to the painting.
I don't really paint them or even see things sometimes until people point out what they see, they just kinda happen while I'm doing it.
I once did a whole bathroom in a very similar fashion and man I was sad to leave it behind.
The bathroom used to scare prissy women, I kinda liked that. >:D

That's so awesome :)

Did you finish it recently or is this just the first photo you've been able to take of it?

I finished it ages ago and have been carting it around with me.
It always seems to end up somewhere difficult to take a good picture.
Everytime I look at it I want to make something else.

Without being biased by reading any of the comments first...

I see a snake and a duck, and some flowers. And maybe some trees and a bug or two. And an open-end wrench (WTF).

Interesting. Now to read other comments...

very cool! I like the purple hummingbird in the middle and the happy crone in the panel on the left. The top middle makes me think of a psychic volcano while the green guy on the bottom just looks sneaky. The right side is Painted Desert-ish

you are very talented.
