It all started with a trip to the new art store in Central Square, Blick. As part of their opening sale, much of their store was half off, a frugal artist’s dream. I decided to only get a single, large canvas. Then I convinced myself I needed new tubes of acrylic (primaries only, of course… well, maybe a brown). Eighty-five dollars later, add two 8×10 frames to the order, argh, oh well. I was so eager to validate the spending that I got to filling the frames right away. But what to put in them? Not another landscape or flower, that just might push Will over the edge. Then a random, beautifully stupid idea popped in my head: ridiculous self portraits. I believe the photos above speak for themselves, cats and all.
