The quality's a little low, had to not use flash, which caused slight motion blur. If it wasn't 1/4 of the way around the world I would take the time to scan it properly, but oh well. I also produced a digital vector version, I think with a few changes. Can't submit it however because my computer says I don't have permission to view the file, even though I'm the admin, and I created the file as the admin. Did this to most of my art, really aggravating! "Woah woah woah! where do you think you're going buster?" "To show my friends my painting." "Not without proper permission, you aren't!" "But this is MY house! Wait... WHO ARE YOU?!"
...
And now, my official artist's statement for this piece:
This painting is meant to create it's own meaning in the viewer. I had this random image pop into my head and I painted it. When critiqued by my art class, everyone found a different meaning in the picture, relating more to them then the painting. I believe this painting has the ability to bring out opinions that some people didn't even know they had.

I worked so hard on getting the texture just right. I was given a canvas board having a smooth side to paint on and a rough side on the back. I used the back side to get a very rough texture, then dabbed with a stiple brush to paint the whole thing for a rough colour. I painted the word "DEAD" and left it to dry. When I came back, I didn't like the colour so I scratched it off. I took a step back and realized that it looked perfect.

I am very fond of this painting as I enjoy dipping inside the human mind. (and occasionally mess around a bit)
