I took into consideration their tagline: "A band as weird as you are." as I started painting this.
It's a combination of sponge painting, finger/hand/arm painting, thread-covered-in-black-paint painting, and smudging-paint-with-a-ruler painting and regular brush painting. It's been very fun. I've gotten black paint all over the wall behind my easel, and everything within splatter-range. Am I going to be in deep shit when my dad finds out? Yes. Do I care? ....yes. But oh well. I don't think I've ever had so much fun painting anything, ever.
I don't know if this is done or not. I like how simple it is, but I sort of feel like I could take it further? As a painting, I think it would be done. But as a tribute painting, I think I may need to add more. I wanted to get some of your favorite lyrics from any of the three Matches albums because I wanted to include some text but I couldn't make up my mind what I wanted to put. And how about Matches-related imagery? Any symbols/pictures that you strongly relate to The Matches? Help me out?
