Re: flappers

I like it, it is quite strange in a good way. Also the background looks pretty great as well.

Re: flappers

Static
it is static
recalls the classic
http://www.americangothichouse.net/about/the-painting/
this is the worst kind of planned family portrait
every one is stiff and straight
no smiles
no adlibs
recalls the recent debates....

and there-in lies its brilliance as a satire of all of the above
it seems deliberately sarcastic
deliberately "perfect"
deliberately awful

actually made me smile immediately
I like sarcastic art
clever

very very clever

Re: flappers

I'm not as excited about this one as I am with some of your other recent works, but it's certainly not terrible art. The key aspect that I miss is a connection to the narrative that must have been present in your mind while creating. I have a feeling it may be strongly associated with the slightly more flamboyant subject second from the right, but not sure.

Re: flappers

thanks corfublue

rick, thanks man - ever see disneys cartoon movie 'mowgli' (the jungle book)?
there's a scene with vultures that pretty much sums up where my head was at whilst painting this. [60 second clip)

anyway, it's gone now, slathered with paint leftovers from last nights class and will be more slathered with leftovers from tonights class. i couldn't stand to look at it anymore.

thanks for your very diplomatic supports

Re: flappers

These are whimsical and creative on many levels. The subtleness in the legs to develop personality is well executed.
