GENERAL INFORMATION:
Title: The Picnic
Year Created: 2003
Medium: Mixed-Media
Surface: Canvas
Dimension: 16x20

MY COMMENTS:
This painting is primarily acrylic but the ants, flies, olive, tomato, egg centers, watermelon seeds, beads, and ice cubes are all attachments. There are also places where three dimensional paint has been applied.

MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
My goal with my work is to make people feel good when viewing my paintings. I want them to walk away entertained but I would like to know what you think about the subject matter. My subject matter always tends to be a bit whimsical and I want to know if you think that makes people/the viewer not take my work as seriously as they would a realistic landscape or portrait.

I like it! You said you wanted to make people feel good when looking at this piece.. I think you achieved it!

I can picture it hanging in a child's room or on a fun colorful patio

this is great, and will definitely make me look more than once to study it.

i can understand about the "seriousness" of work with subject matters like these. i wish i can tell you an answer, but one of my instructors told me, on speaking on any subject matter, if you want to be taken serious, you need to paint terribly large. i can't say if i agree with him yet since i'm fairly new myself.
