So I took these photographs of myself with some fake blood, and I was making all these funny faces. I wanted to paint one of them, and I sketched it out and went out and bought canvas and transfered my sketch and then chickened out and said "Man... I've only used oils once in my life, five years ago, and I threw out the canvas because I got so frustrated. Maybe I should practice first." So this is the practice.Size is 11 inches by 14 inches. I had been drinking the night that I started painting, which adding to the fumes of paint thinner made for some trippy working conditions. Began on May 7th and completed May 8th, 2006. A total of probably four hours. Maybe five.
