It’s late, so I’m just going to say some of the things I like about this one.
- The artist’s canvas is a trapezoid. This was intentional, and part of the abstraction process in which a thing is conveyed with detail and a quality of naturalism, while not being illustrational at all.
- The model is a monster. Her name, if you are wondering, is “Suzy Chop Chop” (the lobster girl).
- The “artist” (no, it’s not me) looks a bit like a 50’s Chevrolet. Kinda’ hard to explain. You either see it or you don’t.
- That there’s a small painting within the painting.
- The overall mix of painterliness, abstraction, surrealism, and even sci-fi. There are a few like this is the series, mostly the later ones, and as far as I know this look is my own concoction.
Here’s all 16 pieces in the series so far in a slideshow.

And if you like my art and art criticism, and would like to see me keep working, please consider making a very small donation. Through Patreon, you can give $1 (or more) per significant new work I produce, and cap it at a maximum of $1 a month. Ah, if only I could amass a few hundred dollars per month this way, I could focus entirely on my art. See how it works here.
