Below is the result of the show's effects on me: a seascape turned to land and clouds turned to sea. It was extremely fun caking on acrylics to a wooden board, smearing it around and wiping it off again. Plus, I couldn't help but add bubble wrap and some pink as that it the essence of Xania!
The 2 first paintings are for sale (20$ each) whereas the last one was sold yesterday at the end of the show by a fan who had come straight from the airport in order to party with us! I admire his enthusiasm greatly.
I also had a revelation about superheroes, following the attack/mugging I witnessed on Halloween in the metro... I have been exploring the meaning of Batman's existence (mostly, it started out as me wishing I was Batman so I could stop this violence and then I thought about what made Batman want to be a superhero and I realized it was the same helplessness that he felt when seeing his parents get murdered that I was feeling right then and there) and I have discovered it comes from a very sensitive part of society that feels powerless in front of injustice and is guilty for not having the power to turn the wrongs into rights. As a superhero, we expect Batman to fill that void and do what we can't, but no matter how 'super' Batman is (or any other hero, for that matter) there will always be a human weakness present brought on by caring so much about the fate of the world, or even just one person. Through our journeys to find righteousness, the very reason that we strive for it to begin with is what ultimately brings us down. That's why Batman is so dark and depressing. Because evil can win.
