this is my first painting, (acrylic on canvas). i've only been painting for a few months, and as an insomniac it makes me feel good to actually have something to do besides staring at the cealing. I had this posted in the acrylics forum, a memeber suggested i should post it in this forum. Kind of a self portrait with an x-girl. I call it White Wedding. Comments are welcome.

Very good. All the more so since it's your first painting. Keep it up.

What size is this piece? On canvas?

By the way, I would call it 'Blue Wedding' but that's just my interpretation...

Glenn thank you much, the piece is 16"x24". White wedding just meaning that it's the total opposite of the traditional happy day. So i guess Blue Wedding would be just as fitting. thanks

:eek: I thinks we cawl them thar weddins' "shotgun'uns" down he'yah in tha sowuth. ;)

The negative emotion portrayed is an interesting contrast to the floral placements...like angry bugs territorial of their petal space.

I really like the way this portrays a wedding that is not wholehearted.
The male is focused on the flowers...the female on the male. The irony abounds!
So glad you posted here and I hope to see more of your work. A big welcome to our forum.

Only been painting a few months? Wow! If this is your first, I'd say you are going to be one to watch for in the future.
Great work! I really liked "Drunkfellas" too!
