In his kingom we stand together,
each heart with strength
So odd the trails that inspiration decides to take. I was sitting on the couch, more or less doing nothing but vaguely skimming across the newest deviations, but my conscious attention was outside, walking with quiet thoughtful steps along the snowy sidewalk. A soft snow was falling, and I was just content to exist. Then this idea came, lunging, screeching and screaming out of the calm. And so..I, surprised and rather taken aback, decided to follow it..curious to see where..if anywhere it would take me.
The snow stopped and melted that night, but somewhere it remained with me as I painted it.
Now to decipher my words. I usually don't paint stuff like this, especially with the bright booold saturated colors I used here. But, it was a good experiment..if not frustrating at times. I think I was inspired by a multitude of things, mostly deviations here on DA..some of tigers...but mostly photography. I saw a good deal of overexposed photos and for whatever reason they stuck with me..I loved the drastic contrasts in color and the dominance of white in composition and wanted..if anything to try and paint something somewhat similar. So I did.
I am not altogether sure what I think of the piece. I can't even say if I like it or hate it, might just take me some time to digest it to find a verdict.
SO here he is, King of Hearts. Take him as he is..like it hate it..I suppose really art is just like anything, one man's trash is another man's treasure.

Critique: discouraged, I probably won't return to this and chances are I may well not do pieces like this in the future since it was experimental.
