MY COMMENTS:
I painted this as a joke and a reminder to those who waste food (Many young kids waste food here in Japan), by letting them know that the food we eat are the lives we took directly or indirectly.


MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
I have fun watching peoples reactions......What do U all think of this?

There is a lot going on in this painting, with much to think about. I'm not sure your meaning is abundantly obvious, but then I'm glad it isn't.

Hello and thanks for your comment Mikey!
I like putting lots of things in my painting......Civilized deer. :D

great illustration
blocked areas in the painting support the idea, but
it is more an idea than a painting in the end

The dispersed position of the objects makes the painting very mysterious but then ... you explained ...

Many adults waste food as well IMO ... :(

i really like this. it is strange and wonderful at the same time. great subject matter! (love the mounted head) it's almost an insult to the dear though, that they might take on the same mannerisms as the human..relaxing at the hunter's lodge. great painting. reminds me of some of the imagery from Animal Farm.

The lighting is phenomenal. That green divine. Reminds me of a quite study - I can smell the rich tobacco and brandy...

Hello Jerry W, Thanks for your comment. :wave:

Hi earthbot1, thanks LOL

Hi haaf, Yes it took lot out of me....for a joke. But it was worth it for me to receive many different reactions. :wink2:

Hello Gilberte, When U live in a country like Japan where we produce only 20 percent of our food supply....It is critical that we don't waste food. :mad:

Hi katelynalain, thanks. I got this idea or concept from a cartoon that I watched when I was a kid.....forgot what it was called. :confused:

Hello Tamana, It would be nice to have a study like that though. ;)
