Scenes From An Imaginary Western

My art, My Stories

Good Morning Starshine it’s…the Painting of the Day! (Friday edition) May 6, 2011

Morning everybody! Another Confidence Man painting. This one’s a bit like ‘Rebel Without a Cause’ filtered through the paranoid lens of something like Radiohead’s ‘Amnesiac’. Or perhaps theĀ  gauzy, beautiful schmaltz of Neil Diamond’s ‘Solitary Man’.

I particularly enjoy the cars lined up across the top of the painting. The drivers just seem to be standing around. Waiting. That, to me, is always more unsettling than someone showing their hand and ‘acting’ threatening. Have a great day everybody! (Click to enlarge…as if you didn’t already know that.)
