“A waterfall may be a good scenario for a fruits painting”, I thought first. But after 10 months of getting bored, I decided right away hahaha: “Let us start a whole remake”… I don’t mind despising hours of painting to start over. “Let us preserve the best side of the cake (read this post not about cakes)” – I said to myself. Look the “before and after”:
I will post here also the poem that inspired this painting. That will be maybe tomorrow😴 have a nice day .
I like to see my life as a celebration. Birthday parties are not the same all around the globe. Here in Mexico, the “cumpleañero” (celebrated) is free to go on his way, all day long. He or she gets to chose where to start cutting the cake. Being a circled one, this decision doesn’t really matter. Also deciding on serving sizes. Of course, if someone is on a diet, he will prefer specific amounts, or no serving at all. But most importantly, the “cumpleañero” decides weather to have a bite and let people scramble his face deep into the pudding. Because if he or she permits to have a bite, guests will stamp his or her face badly, while laughing and taking pictures for sharing. We have also a saying about “choosing the best slice of the cake” which are birthdate presents. And like in the poker game, nobody knows the cards you will get. Decisions, always decisions… Have a nice day.
Pocker is a common card game casinos have. The fun of it, even when money is not involved, is not knowing the incoming cards. In the game called “closed pocker”, players sit without revealing each other’s cards, and betting surprising amounts. Cards show up in this acrylic painting by JAM (me):
Freedom is what I like most of this game. On a nice run, you can do forecasts and insights, with the freedom of raising a bet or letting it pass (this kind of freedom you get in your birthday parties, like the one in which we invented the Julian tale)
Freedom is what the creator made as a gift, to humans. Using freedom, we can do great things, and also fall into insanity. Sometimes it is even fun to make mistakes. Most of the times we have the chance of turning around and fix what we broke. A simple change of attitude could be enough, we don’t need to go to church to compensate, depends on the case.
This painting I showed above, turned out to be coasters for drinks, in my online store. It took me time to create, but it was worth:
At the end of the poker game, you will see reality: whether you have played correctly; if you betted properly, and how lucky were you 👍🏻.
I remember this computer videogame where a worm came from underground eating your stuff. There was no defense, it was not fair. The only thing one could do is to runaway. For a 7 year old like me👦, it was devastating to be devoured by this titanic stomach. As a child, one cannot handle it. I remember being upset and worry, not to live something similar in real life.
Some years (too many) had passed. I got a bachelor degree, and later started painting. Suddenly the unbeatable worm appeared in the canvas. “Oh no, its him, again 😱”, I was frightened at first. “He is back” (like our repeated Julian pattern). Look, this is what I am talking about:
A recurring scene was going on in our teenagers psiques. Whenever a repeating pattern was heard, one of us would go: “do you hear that noise? Julian is coming…”. Then we freekened “run, carry the kids”. HAHAHA active minds we had back then, and we will continue having… who knows what’s going to happen next.
Julian was an imaginary monster we invented.
And “protecting sons” was an exotic scenario for us, being teenagers👦. Now we have real dangers as adults. (Like this eagle, in this YouTube clip, that tried to carry a baby as food). Previously I made a painting, about a bird that grab grapes, and later decided to remake most of it, (a link to this painting is under construction)…. Have a nice day today, because who knows what it is going to happen tomorrow.
