Art Flashback: Wayward Fool
From 2004: Wayward Fool
acrylic on 24″x30″ canvas
I wouldn’t show more than half the artwork I did during 2004 today. It’s just part of the natural evolution of becoming a better artist. However, it’s also partly because of each artwork’s relevance to where I am in life. Even if it’s not obvious to anyone but me, creating artwork often comes from a personal place. Wayward Fool is one piece that I feel stands the test of time. It’s not only because I liked how it turned out but also because it deals with themes I still work with.
I displayed it at the last show I was a part of and it fit in perfectly with newer work I’ve done. It’s funny though because I’m not sure if I ever showed when it was a newer piece. I know I cut it from a solo show I had in 2005. I remember someone told me they were interested in it after seeing it on my website and they were a little disappointed it wasn’t in the show. Oh well, I know I’ve exhibited Wayward Fool in at least one place. Now it’s being stored in my studio again, but it’s available if anyway wants to give it a good home.
