Sad Boy - Crouching Man in monochromatic colours Black and White - Square format

$15.48



This is a painting that literally "saved my life" if not my sanity.

I originally painted it in 1995, when I was coming to terms with the fact that I was planning to drop out of Fine Art, and turn to studying business.

Crazy, I know... But I had had a couple of tumultuous years, and a breakdown of my first serious relationship... I was literally losing my mind and sense of who I was, what was important to me (my art)... It was the beginning of a dark period of my life.

Yet, this painting is where I process and parked the felling that I could not consciously face.

He was recently "bounced" from an exhibition in a psychologists waiting room, "because they have patients..." So I guess that there is a LOT of emotion on the canvas.

I feel bad for him, I want him to find a loving home... Where other people can see the positive in being so RAW with emotion that you feel that you can anymore, yet, somehow you do... You find a way to carry on!

He's the place where I "park" all my stress and worry at home - I gently touch his frame, and leave all my worried there... He deals with them, and carries my burden for me! He's great that way!

I hope that you find him as endearing as I do, and are open to offering him a good and loving home!
