The quote is from Itzah C. Krej. It made me start thinking of fantasy worlds, and how we all live in our own fabricated worlds. Fantasy is easier to observe in children, because they don't disguise it. Adults, on the other hand, have a death grip on reality, but never stop to question
if their perceived reality is really real, or just a more sophisticated world of make believe.
Fantasy World; Acrylic on Canvas; 24"x36"
I have entered these two paintings in the Art League Houston Gambol Show which opens Friday, December 2 at 6PM. The juror is one of the most amazing artists who will be in art history books someday: Mary McCleary. I will have to restrain myself at the opening and hide all evidence of idol worship, because I am definitely a fan.
The first painting above is called "Big Show." It is acrylic on stretched canvas, and measures 48"x60".
The second painting is titled "Courage." It is acrylic on stretched canvas, and measures 48'x60"as well.
