This is a painting I’m working on. It’s part of a series I am doing called the Expressions series. Each painting represents an expression. The first one was an expression of malice, directed toward a certain nameless person/people. This one is an expression of love. Love for my girlfriend. She is amazing and deserves a painting of her.
A little about this paintings/series techniques. I am using hot glue to create raised surfaces. This one will have a thin layer of purple on top of it. However, you will be able to see the colors on the raised surfaces.
Hey everyone! Hope you’re enjoying your existence. If you get a chance, you should check out this beautiful woman’s art blog (she’s the one I post about all the time, the love of my life).

I actually started this painting about 3 years ago, it started as a dream I had about 4 indistinct figures toiling as they walked through a dead silent town towards a cliff. It stayed that way for a while, I was uninspired by it and working on other projects. After a while, I decided to change it somewhat drastically, I covered most of it in this really cool gradient. Recently, I decided that I completely hated what the painting was and I started to paint purple tentacles on it. Well, they look like tentacles anyways. Actually, the painting is about conversations and thoughts, I had the idea in place after adding a few more ‘tentacles’. Each ‘tentacle’ represents a stream of a thought and the intersections are conversations. Some places in the painting have multiple streams conversing or discoursing. And, as comic relief, I added a stream that intersected itself, discoursing with itself. I’m glad it’s finally finished, it’s been in a motionless state for quite some time and needed to be completed. I just couldn’t figure out what exactly I wanted it to be about.
