My second attempt at acrylic painting.

Catharsis; I put a lot of myself in this.

Acrylic on cardboard
Looks way better in reality.



[full view anyways]

" Cezanne [...] told his female sitters to do their best to look like apples, tried to paint portraits in the same spirit. [...] They are Eternity and Infinity seen, not in sand or flower, but in the abstractions of some very superior brand of geometry. Vermeer never asked his girls to look like apples. On the contrary, he insisted on their being girls to the very limit. [...] They might sit or quietly stand but never giggle, never display self-consciousness, never say their prayers or pine for absent sweethearts, never gossip, never gaze enviously at other women's babies, never flirt, never love or hate or work. In the act of doing any of those things they would doubtless become more intesely themselves, but would cease, for that very reason, to manifest their divine essential Not-self. "

Aldous Huxley, The Doors of Perception.
