“Introspective – VonMax”
Busy painting, huh?
Perhaps my most ambitious effort to tell the story of VonMax yet. Or is it?
Am I telling you about me or am I really confronting myself?
You see, painting sometimes can be very personal. It is one of the few places where an individual can drop their guard. It is a place where our inhibitions fall by the wayside. It’s an area of our souls in which we can be completely open and honest with ourselves.
Where we can express joy, sadness, pain, exhilaration, heartbreak, our fears, demons, vices, trials and tribulations and write it off to those looking in as simply being eccentric or weird.
You see, not all art is meant for everyone.
I have never once sat down at a drafting table or in front of an easel and started anything with the thought that this was going to be something that people would love or want to own.
That is not saying I have never painted anything with a specific person in mind for I have but that does not change the direction of my painting. It is still a personal expression.
