I have not studied painting beyond what any of us have in grade school. I try not let other opinions influence what I did unless I absolutely agree with it. I find it best to paint exactly what I want because what one person may like another may dislike. So to me, there's no reason to please anyone other than myself.
On a lighter note, what I get out of making these is a light hearted, child-like, and strange piece of something to look at on a daily basis.
I hope you enjoy them and try not to take them too seriously.
