Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

I am not a big fan of paintings with words on them, so how the heck did I end up putting the title words in this painting?

I got a note from someone who mentioned that they decided to be bold.

I liked that.

Be Bold.

Then in order to Be Bold, it occurred to me that a person must face the fear of whatever they are afraid of in order to Be Bold.

So I just got my handy paint filled squirt bottle and used it like a big old pen and wrote:

F*ck Fear
Be Bold
Money Back
(except that the paintings have the letter "u" in the first word...)

It was synchronicity that at the same time I was starting this series of paintings, I found acrylic spray paint. Oh my gosh! It made me feel like such a bad boy to use spray paint and use the "F" word in a painting all at the same time!

My regular medium is reclaimed recycled acrylic house paint. So this series gets the bonus of acrylic spray paint too.

I truly believe that my intentions and thoughts when I am painting remain in the artwork and will be there for you.

Materials used:

recycled acrylic house paint and acrylic spray paint
