|Oil on Canvas – 16″x 20″|
Someone from DA taught me a new word. It’s a very special word and I plan to use it to describe future paintings. Apparently, I was creating a bunch of “pastiches” without even realizing there was a word for it. Sort of like that time I was painting all those fishes on bicycles without ever having heard the saying: “a woman without a man…” I’m sure you know the remainder of that quote.
My new series of paintings are not quite “satires” or “parody”, and fall upon the bare minimal qualifications for a “tribute”. A pastiche (according to Wikipedia) is like an imitation with some other things thrown in there (not quite a satire, but, sometimes a satire).
…Anyway, this is my pastiche of Picasso’s “Women Running On The Beach”. Enjoy!
