as you can see Im VERY EXCITED to be having my portrait painted! For those of you who don't know his work, go and check out the paintings of @despero-narciso . He is awesome! And I am one of the lucky winners of his portrait competition so soon my beautiful face will be immortalised FOREVER in his uniquely brilliant style..... BUT WHICH ONE???
He asked for my hands to be involved because he loves painting hands....and this led me to think that I should have the piano involved, since thats something I like to use my hands for! So we did a little photo shoot :D :D
Lets have a look at the contenders:
Help! Ive forgotten how to play!
This encapsulates that feeling I get a lot when I tell another musician that I play piano and theyre like 'oh cool, hey why don't you jam with me' and my whole being screams with fear because I really only know how to play the stuff I practise....
Heres one I wrote earlier...
Now you can see I am trying to distract the other musician with something I wrote myself, briefly convincing them that I might be a semi-accomplished player
Now I will claw you to death!
At this point, I finally have the other musician where I want them and I decide to go in for the kill so that none shall ever discover my glaring inabilities
Knock Knock! Is that the police?
Anyone who has ever killed a musician before will know you can get a bit edgy when the door knocks or the phone rings. This photo sums up that sense of imminent disaster, and the creative thought process that immediately begins. How will I talk myself out of this one? Where can I hide? If only that shoebox was a bit bigger.....
Hopefully one of these is inspiring enough for @despero-narciso to want to use...or maybe he can stitch a few elements of them together...? Either way, Im sure your opinions might have an impact on his decision so feel free to go ahead and influence his decision! Also, if you have any other ideas Im always game for a photo shoot....but let me know quick because once an artist begins he MUST NOT BE DISTURBED!
Im SO looking forward to seeing what he does : )
