So, I have been moving on in life. Usually during the winter I tend to think to much and start to get all...icky...Anyhow, I found some old journals and letters to myself and others that I wrote during a nasty spell in my life. Reading them just made me feel terrible, so I tore them into strips. Then with some of the strips I made a little person with glue and painted it with watercolors. Then I painted some of the other strips with watercolors and tore them up some more. I got out a canvas, my acrylics and 'went to town'. This is the end result. As I was doing this, The song, 'even the losers' by Tom Petty, was stuck in my head. I loved that song SO MUCH when I was 13. So I named it, 'It's Just The Normal Noises In Here!'
phone camera, sorry

Looks like such a mess, but then, people used to call me Headmess! Smiley I have GOT to get a better camera!

This is fantastic! As you know, I love dimension, and this painting certainly has that!! I also love that you can really feel the emotion in it. It's really great when you can feel the emotions that artist was feeling at the time just by looking at a painting. LOVE it!

I really like the whole emotional "working out" that inspired this piece...having an emotional (creative) workout is better than a "go to the gym" workout, anyday!!!   My fav part is the little person you created  Cheesy...love it all!

Way to go for turning something negative into something beautiful! I agree that you can really see the emotion in this piece...

I am looking at this and I am seeing that it is REALLY a frantic looking piece now. Almost as if I couldn't wait to cover all of that up with paint. Uhf dah! I guess it is more of an art therapy piece. I just can not wait until I am able to slow it down. My next painting, I am just going to let things flow. I have noticed also, that I tend to gravitate towards reds and yellows, perhaps some blues would calm my crazy self down a bit.  Thank you, my Craftster pals! I am glad you are here to bounce things around and share with.
