The Path To Hell in 60 secs. or less

Just spend your time thinking about yourself. Or try comparing yourself to other people. Or focus on what you don’t have.

If you want to live in hell, go ahead.

This painting is The Bluest EyeThe title is a reference to Toni Morrison‘s first novel. In the story, the main character, a little black girl, is driven mad because she wants to be like all of the images pushed on her as ideal beauty; white, blonde and blue-eyed.

She has no sense of who she is and as life happens, like it will, she can’t handle it.

If you want to be somebody, be yourself!

This painting was done years ago. I ran across it yesterday cleaning up a shed that houses all of my old art work. I was considering painting over it. But now that I’ve remembered the experience of painting it and what it was about, I think I’ll keep it.
