Picasso was not a huge influence to me, but many first time viewers of my art would often reference him. I used to get annoyed, but instead started my "Barncasso" series that embraced some of his characteristics - coupled with my John Barney style. This larger painting is guaranteed to bring a fantastic shot of color into your living or work space! If you have a room where neutral colors are in play - this will bring it alive. It was painted with a palette knife, so much texture is in evidence, which really makes it pop and gives it character. Of course, there's a bit of psychological dimension going on as well, so have fun exploring your inner psyche. It'll make a great centerpiece for a room. It's painted on the sides and ready to hang - no need to frame.
