Painting Experiments

So I popped by Fernbank Museum's swing session out of curiosity mostly, considering I can't dance. I didn't have a sketchbook, but I did have a painter's book about how to make money as a fine artist. I didn't like the book, it was fluff, depressing, and pompous. So I sketched some of the sites and pulled out my acrylics to mess around a bit.

So this is a break from normalcy for me. Color! Paint! Minimal lines! Gasp! Did Ethan Mongin really do this? Or did some demon from a parallel hell dimension possess his body just long enough to post this polychromatic oddity to his blog site? We may never know the answer.....Or...the answer could be.....that Ethan needed money to buy a ring for a lovely lady and decided that he'd rather do it by painting as opposed to stealing or shanking an inter-dimentional hell beast that might not have appreciated being mugged by a skinny white boy.
