This 24″ × 20″ acrylic on canvas I painted in June of 2001. I was experimenting with various thick paint textures as well as painting eyes.
In 2014 I really looked at this work again from the perspective of loading it to RB Products. I made some alterations that I believe are congruent with original artistic intent of the work. ;-)))

A persona who has apparently lived a relatively long, varied and eclectic life. My Red Bubble portfolios reflect my seeming persona… and IF there’s any veracity to these reflections then some sense of HUMOUR and enjoyment should be PRESENT!
‘Ola!’ ;~}}}

    I like it; I would have it title as I am watching you :)) great imagination James

  • it implies your title… but when I painted this I was constantly playing with ‘shield’ concepts… how others hide behind… but as I soon discovered it was about ‘how I hid/hide behind MY shields"… so if asked to sum up my past ten years in as few words as possible I’d say; “A constant process of becoming aware of my metaphorical shields and incrementally dissolving my need for them.” ;-)))) it’s what makes me so ‘charming’ today ;-))) hahahhaahaha (that’s a joke… kinda!;~)))

  • Mary 4 years later I’m adding this MUG so your suggested title of “I’m Watching You” could haunt someone with their morning coffee!

    trust you’re doing well… and have a happy new year, too! ;-)))
