Extend (Abstract)

13 Mar


The thing I personally find most appealing about this piece is the strong line and color.  As I was painting I was kind of thinking about those funny blow up characters some people will put out in front of car lots or furniture stores to advertise a sale.  They pump air through them and the funny looking characters rock back and forth waving their arms high into the sky.  I know its completely silly, but that is what comes to mind for me!  Any likeness is completely unintentional. 🙂  Oh, and if you’d like one of your own, its on sale at my Society6 store online.
