A Painting of a Guy Painting a Painting

It's funny how ideas work.  Last summer I spilt some white paint on a completely green canvas. The spill reminded me of a shirt so I added arms and a brush and face and legs and then started getting really "meta" and decided to paint an artist painting a painting.

So I was a guy painting a painting of a guy painting a painting.  I thought that was pretty clever and so forth and showed it to people and nobody seemed to care or think it was funny or whatever so I guess I just drank too much coffee and got a bit too close to insanity and too excited about a silly little idea.

Then last week I came across an old notebook from 2010 and I found a sketch I'd made.  It said "PAINT THIS !" and showed a scribble of an artist painting a painting of another artist painting a painting and so forth until infinity.

So it took me five years and completely forgetting that silly idea to actually get around to making a worse version of what I'd set myself out to do in the first place.

But I kind of like this new painting.

And I hope you do to !
