I thought, “Gee, I’d like to do a portrait.” There’s always myself, of course, but it feels completely self-absorbed to do self portraits, oddly enough.
So I had this picture of Salvador Dali that I found on Wikiart and thought, that’ll do. Hope you like the time-lapse. I do. They’re fun to watch. Sometimes I scrub them backwards and watch the image disappear from the page. Poof!
Dali was such a mad man, wasn’t he? And I’ll bet he had no problems with self-absorption. Look at that mustache! You could poke someone’s eye out with that thing! What a loon. But such a wonderful artist.
Do you suppose that lunacy is the price you have to pay for great paintings? It’s something to think about. I’m pretty sure I’d rather keep my marbles and just be a fair to middling painter, me.
