Under Pressure is finished. I will say this, this artwork has been one of my most enjoyable. Not only did I have fun working with all the wood pieces that I added to this work, I entertained myself with a lot of Freddie Mercury, and David Bowie music. My feelings are that this painting will remain one of my favorites for a long time, and set the bar high for my next projects.
In the video, about Under Pressure, I speak my thoughts and feelings about this painting. One thing I mentioned was how I was “impressed” by how fast this art has “involved”. Well, that may be true with the art, but when it comes to my video presentations all I can say that I have seen very little “involving” going on here.” Bottom line I can not believe in these videos that I am actually this person. I can only give myself a break based on the fact that I rarely speak, period, to anyone about this art. What I do say about my art, I do only in words om a webpage. That is pretty much it.
I have discovered, while working on this artwork, some wonderful songs that now are a part of my must listen to music list. Here are a few more favorites:
There is a lot of David Bowie music that I could have picked from. Early on in this project, my first choice was Changes. Looking back, I can say that I could have also painted, Heroes, Let’s Dance, New Killer Star, and probably one or two more. I did not, and I am glad I picked a Queen song that features David Bowie, for he brought to those great lyrics, a wonderful contrast between Freddie Mercury’s voice and his.
I can not tell you if this is good or bad painting, for this artwork will define itself in time. But, what is important to me is that I enjoyed my time painting Under Pressure, and listening to two of the best artists of my time.
