Converting the Converted

These elements merge and hold many visual delights. I find what is in the lines and bring out other shit. There are 2 faces about to kiss, but their heads are attached to something else. Do you see it?⠀

The Kiss

The chemistry between these two is unmistakable. So many great paintings by the same name, it’a my little homage to Klimpt. His famous painting of The Kiss has a similar sentiment. Notice how the back of the male head is attached to another head.

I was watching “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” when I painted this. Like the song, The Origin of Love. Often movies inspire my work. I will sometimes watch a film while I paint, looking up. Every now and then, I catch a flash of color that can be visual inspiration.

There is a fight about to break out. Aggressive and submissive personalities meet. Much like the dynamic of love and hate.

Nursing Baby

The Baby is being nursed by a ghost. Don’t ask me how. I just showed up.

The Hair

It flows long and one of the more satisfying areas for me to look at. The kiss is tender, but the man and woman’s hair characterizes them. Perhaps the way an animal looks almost human. Did I see the cat flip me off? It won’t phase the moment this man and woman share. Hopefully one that will last a lifetime.
