DON'T ADJUST YOUR TELEVISION - THIS IS A FIENDISH FAUVISH NIGHTMARE!
Picasso said that an artist need not keep a journal - his paintings will do..
Among the 100s of paintings tucked away, are the ones really tucked away. The nightmare ones: nocturnal or otherwise. All of the figures seen here may not represent persons living or dead.
At times painting peaceful landscapes may be interrupted and the painter must "exorcise" nightmares - nocturnal or otherwise with the help of acrylic and brushes to produce a Fauve like non-painterly work.
This is titled: "Breaking the Ninth (I)"
What do we see here? It is a 32" X 22" acrylic on birch board. All nine figures have long Pinocchio bright red noses with seven of them holding up their right hands. Eight of them have a very long very ominous black thumb nail!
There is a sign that reads: "Long Noses Meet Here Nightly".
The green ogre middle figure is holding what appears to be "big money" in his left hand with a long black thumbnail. He is wearing red high heels to match his enormous big baggy red panties. On the right hand he holds an overflowing pitcher of beer.
Starting clockwise above the ogre you will see 4 of the nine figures look dissipated, drunken, baggy eyed and pitiful as they each are holding up beer mugs or cans. One female figure seems to be greedily pointing at the ogre's money.
At the bottom right you will find a bearded blonde woman kissing one of the ogre's red high heels. In her left hand, she is clutching money and on her engagement ring finger a "diamond" like ring with a tag marked with a $1 price and the letters CZ.
Rounding around at bottom left under the ogre's "stool" you will find a sleepy eyed man in a blue shirt, clutching a very large hamburger bag while hungrily smacking his lips.
At mid left, behind the ogre, a bubble or balloon face man wearing glasses and dollar signs in his eyes... possibly whispering to or directing the green ogre. He is precariously tied to the back of the chair, as if one pull...and he is gone...
...nightmares - noctural or otherwise must be exorcised by the painter!
