“Anger is short-lived madness.” ~Horace
“Anger blows out the lamp of the mind.” ~Robert G. Ingersoll
“ANGER-is sometimes inherited, men get it from wives and lovers!” `Unknown
This piece is inspired by the many men I have encountered, as well as male children, who suffer internally from anger and rage, which they had never been allowed to express appropriately. Society allows a female to cry, have an angry emotion, but the male is frowned upon all too often for such emotional displays. Personally, I find nothing more touching than to see a grown man weep as they grieve for the parts of the self they too have lost.
Digitally painted in Photoshop from earlier work while in design school, a small portion was begun in Poser, which was a flop! Brush stroked in Twisted Brush, textures by Skeletal Mess, one original background image, one digital painting, two textures. All brought into Photoshop, duplicating and adjusting each layer for color, effect, and opacity.
