Tempted

I've always harbored a secret desire to just be a painter. So, occasionally I will indulge myself and paint something.
I love Picasso, cubism, Covarrubbias, Braque, lots of abstract stuff, so that's what I like to paint. Here's a recent one I did.  I am doing a series of Biblical paintings, and this is the first. I call it "Tempted". It's of Adam and Eve in the Garden, kissing. Except that Eve is looking off at the Forbidden Fruit.

Go for it,Keelan.BE A PAINTER. To be or not to be, that´s the question!
I myself want to paint and I also like Picasso. Have you seen the painting "Girl in front of a mirror"?

Keep 'em comin' buddy... What's that, acrylic on canvas? ...This might be an excellent niche for you, this subject matter combined with the abstraction. Original.

Thanks, guys. Yep, acrylic on canvas board, Tim. I love acrylic because it's so immediate. You don't like something, let it dry for a few minutes, and change it! Appeals to my short attention span! LOL.

man... these are pretty cool Keelan. I wish I could do 'abstract' like you. I love how you paint them nice & large like the ones you did of you & the family. They are so perfect for hanging up on the wall. =) Very cool!

As for "Adam & Eve".. I'm always intrigued by this story.. especially since I've been married. Woman have such a strong influence on men.. like I never knew before. They can either build them up or tear them down. In this case.. I think Eve was trying to be the authoritative one.. instead of submissive. Roles were reversed & out of order.. where Adam became submissive one... and resulted in terrible consequences. :P Total bummer. lol. xP
