Congrats on being first on IF this week! I love all the layering and rough textures in this painting.
I really like the coarseness and abstract style - you handled non-inspiration well!
genius! genius i tell you! now this better be on some cardboard box or you're in trouble! ;)
Olive it! I mean, I Love it!!!
Oooh! This is fabulous!
I hear you. Your piece looks great considering you weren't inspired! It IS an oddity, isn't it?
so not being inspired must be a good thing o_O I see you are first again. You must have quick reactions and not enough friday pub lunches to go to!
AbFab, my dear... AbFab!!!
Very intriguing, love the concept.
Wow Willie, I am impressed that you were up so early today, painting this fabulous piece of art for Illustration Friday! ;-PNice!-kate : )
Willie- you are always inspiring! I got "upbraided" for using a pen to sketch in a museum here in Tyler (yes! we have a museum!) But I thought it was just a Tyler thing- but I really think they were very uncomfortable seeing a living artist actually sketching. What added to the weird experience was that on exhibit was a sketchbook of an artist's sketches freom a museum!
very nice! My favorite part is how the fingers are olive green; which - of course - would go with that martini!
Love the colors in the hand!
I love this green hand!!!
Creativity can also be an untamed beast.
superb man! i'm thinking this is one of my favorites.
Excellent piece! I really dig the textures and colors. It speaks volumes. Way to go!
i like the colors
Way coOol, Willie!....and the Devil Lady at the museum...HaHa!
Love the red fingernails x
love the color and composition..looks like a collage
Interesting Style!Your creativity is unique and funny!Thanks for comment in my blog!Cata.
i like this piece - and the style - rough and interesting
This almost looks like it was painted using only fingers....very bold, very creative :).
Totally wonderful! Thanks for your sweet comment willie!
Great illo! Sometimes inspiration comes from weird places or when you're weirdly inspired!
good question, we all need a little inspiration sometimes (I have George of course, he's always inspiring to me)
Is this lack of inspiration ?Wow! You art is so free and daring!thanks for stopping by my blog!
This morning, I thought the topic was awful... but then my creativity took over and I finally figured out what to post. Creativity comes in waves. I am drawn to your piece. To me it feels like abstract expressionism.
very amazing for "not being inspired" - also your line drawings are wonderful - simple and profound
very nice painting, reminds me of esrly Cubism...mostly I like the green hand!!!!:)
Nice feel to this...really like the layering in the background...with regards to your art museum sketch visit...a couple of years ago I found this out too, so when I took the class on a field trip I informed them pencils only with their sketchbooks...when we got there one girl (who was a horrible student all around but wanted to try to impress the 87 year old lady that was our tour guide) was using her pencil as a pointer while she 'critiqued' a Monet...she kept waving it around and got within two inches of the painting with each swoosh...I flashed between wanting to strangle the kid and trying not to laugh as the old woman's eyes kept getting bigger and bigger and she was trying to keep from jerking the pencil out of her hand...
Nice textures and colors Willie. It has a rawness reminiscent of Basquiat.
dito the textures rock! and your first great!
I'm just here to bow down with the masses Willie - great work.Do you actually have a job? Work at home? How do you manage to be first so often - I mean a line drawing is one thing, but a painting is something else again.
"Do you actually have a job? Work at home? How do you manage to be first so often" lol!well you raced us all once again! and yep, this is a great composition all together!(hope i get to see my portrait soon too) haaa! yours is done, so hmm...
I didn't know Frankenstein's Monster painted! Cool! heheeeWhat is it with all these pop-ups?
wht along strange trip its been, inspired or not
Excellent piece! well, It isn't an abstract style and i really like that... its very expressive.
Beautiful abstract, Willie! The color palette is great! I've been to your imagekind site and thought that this is really a great piece to list!
I like it when you throw something new and wonderful into the mix!
Awesome painting! uninspiration frees you, and frees you from self-consciousness?
Toothpaste! Absolutely wonderful!
Very impressive and you are first again amazing
Fucking lovely.How come you're always first on IF. Is there some secret illo-cabal between you and The P. you'd like to let us know about?
a funny animal indeed.
i have been unispired myself. your painting is inspiring however... LOL!
ohooohyeeeargh!that is me twisting in ecstatic appreciation of your creative endeavor here.....oooh love it.
Thanks for stopping by! :-)Willie
