Pissed Off!

This painting was inspired by the challenge Alan presented to me.

His comments were that I really could never consider myself as a serious artist until I developed a unique style and theme recognizable as a “Melanie.”

I became extremely angry and hurt. “Pissed Off” even!

After I indulged myself in self-pity, I came to the conclusion that he was right.

I needed to prove him wrong as well as fulfill an obligation to myself.

Born from resolve and determination, my paintings have become a form of self expression and a personal point of view.

What really pisses you off?

Asking me to judge art is akin to asking a sheepherder in Pakistan to weigh in on the relative merits of NFL quarterbacks. But, I liked the title, "Pissed Off".

Judging art has more to do with personal likes and preferences rather than a knowledge of art.

Buyers should buy what makes you feel good rather than listening to experts.

Thanks for taking the time to respond.

p.s. I don't know about Pakistan or the NFL either
