Alright well I'm not sure how I'm going to start this. Part of me wants to explain my thought process behind these pieces, another part thinks it'll undercut the work with these preconceived notions before you even see the work...
Also I'm pretty sure that people just look at the pictures and don't even read what I'm typing... So I'm going to let the paintings talk for themselves. I got process photos because I'm still holding Kevin's camera hostage. If you like this you should join me in convincing Kevin he doesn't need his camera really.
TOO LONG DIDN'T READ(TLDR) VERSION: I'M LOOKING FOR CRITICISM ON SOME ABSTRACT PAINTINGS I'M DOING.

You saw the beginning of this one last post, here is with some text. I know where I'm going with this one, and the text is going to be obscured some more, but I'd thought I'd keep you up to date on what I'm doing.
I liked the beginning of this painting. Was terrified in the middle, after a chat with Jordan, I pushed through and created this. Would love to hear your opinion on it since I'm basically waiting to see Scott's reaction before I move forward with it. Jordan likes this painting and with his confidence in me I went crazy and...
This one is my favorite right now... Just freaking pops
Look I made a Jordan Elquist Painting.
And turned it into this. This is no where, where I want it to be, but the surface was wet and the bright colors I wanted weren't going to happen until I let it dry.
Don't start sentences with "and." This is the last one.
I think I'm going to hold off in delving into all the crazy thought behind these paintings. I will tell you though that all the paintings, except for the license plate painting, are rifting off of the same theme.
If you prod I'll probably tell you more, but for now I'm just going post this and see what bites.
