Nuclear Lawnmower

may 7 - EDIT: I changed the photo of the painting to one that I think is much more colour-accurate.
It took me about 2 million shots on my camera to get something decent.

Hello blog friends,
Here's a painting i've been meaning to share with all of you:

Nuclear Lawnmower
Acrylic on canvas
12" x 12"

I haven't used acrylic in a long time so this was pretty rough to do at first.
(Im not too good with photographing paintings but i think the colours are decently accurate).

I call it nuclear lawnmower for the simple fact that I feel if my painting teacher, Tim, saw this he would say "The sky looks very nuclear" or something to that effect.

(p.s. if you are good at photographing acrylic and/or oil paintings... let's be friends).

When I worked at a golf course, I ran over a boy I liked with a lawnmower. The blades weren't on, but damn it was embarrassing.

That is what your painting reminds me of.

Frank - Im glad you like it and especially glad that it made you laugh. It makes me laugh. I think that's the purpose of the painting. laughter. nuclear laughter.
