You’re Lucky To Be Mine!

Text says – ‘Although he’s a decent lover, Ellen’s had it with her smug albino boyfriend!’ The smug lover is handing Ellen a valentine (via fist puppet) that says ‘You’re lucky to be mine!’ Caveman Cupid is impaling the valentine saying ‘You’re blowing it!’ Ellen’s body harbors a cave which has a river and lots of cavefish. Text there says ‘There are plenty of other fish in the cave!’ Ellen’s hair is a leopard skin which I decked her in to give her strength.  And albino Venus standing is standing in a conch surrounded by tiny love fish.

Ellen! This is not your Prince Charming!!  You don’t have to settle! This is a tense breen!

Albino Ahab

AFTER BREENING(forgot to do a before photo)

Text says,‘Albino Ahab Sails the Deepest Whales In Search Of The Great White Cavefish!’Acrylic on oil? on masonite about 12.5″X10.5″ including painted frame.

Mrs. Breen, knowing my weakness for Captain portraits, recently picked this up for me in Rowley. I was feeling kind of Melville when I started the painting, but it seemed if we were going to have a large albino water creature it should be a sightless cave fish. So then I made the Captain sightless too and put him in a deep cave, which got kind of biblisized into a Jonah-ish whale gut.

As my paintings are usually teeming with eyes, I tried to resist putting any eyes into this work as an experiment, although maybe the empty eyesockets on the skull spider cheat a little.

All in all, an inoffensive whimsical breen if I do say so myself!
