Ok.... so here's the story behind this painting. I was reading this article about this 13 year old girl from New York City who got strangled to death because she didn't pay her hairstylist for braiding her hair. That's the inspiration. Please don't think I'm crazy and disturbed.  Embarrassed

So turn
Up the corners of your lips
Part them and feel my finger tips
Trace the moment, fall forever
Defense is paper thin
Just one touch and I'd be in
Too deep now to ever swim against the current
So let me slip away- Dashboard Confessional

i like the way that you composed your painting - the red really pops out. and don't worry, no one thinks you're disturbed.  Smiley

wow I'd probably have had the same reaction but isn't it just so cool about art that everyone does it differently? my artwork on the same theme would have been totally different. But woah, that's harsh. poor girl.

besides, the best artists were crazy and disturbed, and didn't it disturb you to hear about that girl? so that's how you got your feelings out. nothing wrong with being a little crazy in this day and age. you can't remain sane in a crazy world anyhow.

it is a very very awesome painting.

Thank you guys so much for the feedback! Whenever I show my mom my art  she's like: "That's so creepy. Can't you paint a flower or something?"  Roll Eyes

I think it looks great. You're too cool for school.  Tongue And mom is mom...
faboo use of composition and I like your use of text.  I find that it is very hard to use text well in paintings but you did a good job. your colors are dark and tragic (like the story). i like that the red on the happy face is transparent. is this oil or acrylic or something else?

i think you are disturbed for creating a teeny noose hanging from a fan for my teeny beanie baby lamb... Kiss

Twanks, Nina! I forgot all about that lamb.....oh well. I used a acrylic and gloss medium. Why don't you post some of your work? AND PUT UP A PICTURE!

P.S. In case everyone was wondering.... we are sisters.

Wow
Gee whizz
How long did that take?
Have you layered the paint, and what kind?
You are not disturbed, if only i could paint like that! I get L O W as marks in all art-related subjects- and i've just got an assignment that require drawing of several "photographs". Great.
