Nothing to lose and everything to gain

Nothing to lose and everything to gain

Nothing to lose and everything to gain

Look at this little tyke. Just look at him. You can just tell by the slightly sullen yet steely look in his eye that he’s on the warpath. He was probably involved in the riots or lives on the wrong side of the tracks. You get the feeling that someone has taken something of his and he’s pretty determined to get it back. Or something like that anyway.

To be honest it can be quite trying to put words to our pictures but i do enjoy doing it as taxing my lexicon can be a motivator in itself and sometimes it allows you to show some of the thought processes behind the piece. Although saying that i’m not entirely convinced that explaining yourself is at all necessary (surely someone can make their mind up about whether or not they like a piece without knowing anything about the artist, what it’s about or why it was created?)

Sometimes the write up is just froth off the top of my head to give an otherwise puzzling piece some levity. Either way it is what it is and this kid is still not very happy with you…

It is A2 in size and is made using the magic of acrylic paint and ink. Signed on reverse.
