Day 67: "Nutshell", acrylic on hardboard, 8cm x 8cm (sold)

Nutshell – day 67

This painting is a tribute to Alice In Chains, 
one of the bands I love a lot and had huge influence on me.

 

Nutshell

 

We chase misprinted lies

We face the path of time

And yet I fight

And yet I fight

This battle all alone

No one to cry to

No place to call home…

Zipper

 

One of the most useful inventions in modern times,

the enemy of the buttons: the zipper.

And to be honest, even thou I can paint it,

I still don’t know how it works.

Insignificant

 

There is nothing special about this painting. There is no story behind.

This is just some insignificant part of the pipe for central heating system

in our apartment . I just wanted you to see what I was looking at 5 hours ago.

Cherry

 

Art can be many things, but above all is cheating.

Cheating eyes with illusions, cheating ears with stories that never happened…

How sad.

 

Hi. My name is Toni. I make art and I am a liar.

Even this cherry knows that.

Cherry bowl

 

Let us assume it’s 20th of November and you have start a project “100 days of mini art”

and your goal is to paint some small painting or drawing or illustration and publish it

for the next 100 days. Let us assume that it is January 20th and you were out all day

and you didn’t have time to do what you have planned. Now, let us assume it is 21:00h

and you know that you have just 3 hours left to paint/draw something. And (assuming)

you are tired and you have limited options, and there are only 3 choices for you to paint

and publish on your blog:

1. cherry bowl

2. quick portrait

3. painting of a cherry, including your opinion about what is art and how on earth the art

have impact on people.

My question is: what would you choose?

Cherry bowl, right?

Coffee cup

 

One day, I might be able to paint the smell of the coffee.

Until then, I am perfectly happy with painting this coffee cup.
