Medicine Man

Finding art in remote places is exciting.  This piece is a painted bull skull found in Cedar City, Utah, USA:

Artist Lydia Brescia.  She calls it Medicine Man Bull Skull.  “It has a ‘third-eye’ on the handprint, lightning bolts shooting from hands and “glo in the dark paint” on the inside, garnet on antler slice near the end of the nose, dream catcher, hawk and Peacock feathers and bear decorations along with aboriginal painting!”

What’s Done is Done

Abstract, 48" x 36" acrylic on canvas

The moment I published the previous post, I knew what I had to do.  I painted over the piece.   I hated it.  It was trite; revolting.  Layers upon layers of retrying thickened the  canvas, but I could not make it work.  I was attached to an idea, an image in my head that I could not reveal.  I am happy I covered it.  This is the result. Thus, the psychology of art in process.
