The Knot



Earlier this year I did a watercolor ACEO of this same composition. (see below) Here it is in acrylic, on a raymar panel, 8x10.
"The Knot". The idea came from people arguing. The cat, well, I have a couple cats and they make great studio models.

The head is from a clay figure I did; the hands/arms are from a photo of me holding a knotted rope --looks pretty silly as a photo, but makes a good painting subject!

Here's the watercolor ACEO version:

TTB,

I like the representation of the girl in the second one best, but the cat in the first one best. The girl in the first one looks like YOU (no surprise and no commentary on which one I like best ;) ).

I also often observe and participate in knotty/argumentative conversations. Dunno if I told you about the engineer/pig in the mud argument poster I have in my computer room. ?

Hey Rick, thanks for looking at my blog! Glad you like the Knot--either version. There is an old saying that artists tend to make self portraits of everything, perhaps it is true.

Engineer/pig in the mud argument...do you have it on your computer? Would like to see it.
