Self-Portrait #157

I ran out of paper for the balloon in my mind. There are many, MANY days where I feel like I many never have another idea for a painting and then out of nowhere an image springs into my mind and I HAVE to draw it.

I'm glad there's a balloon because otherwise it makes you look really sad. And I don't want you to look really sad...

Umm, is it weird that it took me a long time to understand what your first sentence meant? I thought to begin with that maybe it was some sort of experiment in existential thought. You know... "the balloon in my mind" as a symbol either for the child in all of us or an acknowledgement of the pressure we're under that makes us feel like should the wrong prick cross us, we would explode.

But then I understood that you'd imagined drawing a balloon, but the paper wasn't big enough, and I understood that I was just crazy.

Thanks for the ride.
