My Weapons

I was just messing around in my bathroom-atelier, fighting against my inner enemies with my brushes and knives. As I finally lost the war, full of rage against myself I threw my weapons into the sink. A little bit later, when I had calmed down and wanted to wash them for the next fight, I was struck by the beauty of what I saw in the sink. I swear, I did not touch or add anything, it was exactly like that!

I guess I have more chance now to sell this photo than the paintings I did!

PS: as you see, the blood I lost in this war today was yellow, and not red!

thanks for this interesting comment, Carmen! In fact I am a very spontaneous painter and this is the reason why i have to fight some wars with myself sometimes... that morning I even got some paint in my eyes, it was quite painful... This theme would certainly make a great painting, not sure though how i would paint my brushes, with my fingers I guess!

Very interesting effect, Miki -- has an exotic flavour. Your implements still seem to be reverberating with the force of the moment. This will also make a fantastic painting if you're as spontaneous with it as you were when this happened.
