A true story...while in Key West my wife and I see this painting. "Great painting," we say. A husband and wife are also walking by. The wife says, "Yes, great painting!" The husband says, "I don't get it?" The wife says, "Look at the hat, Dear." He says, "oh...yeah." Like i said..."Great painting!"
My piece expresses me because it contains lyrics of some of my favorite songs, places I have visited and want to live in (London, Venice, etc.) and also Johnny Depp, who is my favorite actor. I have incorporated the cityscapes that were in my smaller print from the collage, and also the constant of closed eyes. I have incorporated my outsider artist (Adolf Wolfli) by having writing in the background of my collage, similar to the writing in his work.
