Okay, on request.. before doing these it was a while since I painted, been uninspired I guess. My ex got me into listening to The Smiths which for me was unknown territory and I got hooked and for some reason I got really inspired by it, spriritually and musically and felt like painting some sort of "thank you for the music" thing. :p turned into these four paintings of the 2 creative forces (Johnny Marr & Morrissey) behind the music and 2 song interpretations.

 

the one I did today was the last,

I hate buying gifts and tend to foist my creations on people instead, and I realised when doing the ones above that that kind are quite good for that, easy to hang and easy to make to fit the receiver.. this year being the 20th for many people I know i've been doing a few, here are 2..

and the one i did now for someone with a fondness for mr morrissey. she also has a thing for soap bubbles so i put those in there too with the lyrics

"you are not right in your head, and nor am i, and this is why i like you"

 

hard to see there but it's layered with glossy varnish on the face/hands part and the bubbles -->
