Dead Fly 15 - Passive Aggressive

Dead Fly 15
acrylic on canvas 8"x10"

     This was another quickie. Just kind of sloshed the paint on the canvas. It ended up moving away from the colors I had planned when I tried to put a glaze (thin paint and water) over top and the colors kind of ran together. No problem. Paint sometimes has a mind of its own. Now take a look at this:

Dead Fly 15 (upside down)

     Whereas the original Dead Fly 15 looks dead and passive, which is how a dead fly usually looks, the same dead fly turned upside down looks malicious and aggressive. When this one is framed I'll put hangers on both sides so it can be flipped according to mood.
