50 Canvas Challenge #4 - WonderStrange Arts
I watched the video for this one this morning, and when trying to come up with my own concept, I was drawn to my favorite (and inspriring) band, Poets of the Fall. I write to them VERY often and just love their music.
Put a playlist of 4 or 5 of the songs and dinked around with the lyrics to Carnival of Rust
(Haven't heard it before? Give it a listen. Seriously. You'll thank me.
), Thus where the Lyrics on the piece comes from. If you can't read it, here's what it says:
"It's all a game, avoiding failure when true colors will bleed" (First line, Second verse)
I realize in a generation, this will not be read as I believe cursive writing has been dropped as part of the curriculum. Tragedy. Is it a sign of the modern times where most things are print, or a conspiracy so that the future generations will not be able to read the U.S. Constitution....?
More puffy paint and spackling with the added bonus of my lonely mechanical robotic no-armed woman in the corner. I have my own interpretation of this, and I'll let you draw your own conclusions.
