For Sale Never Worn

John Thomas's avatar John Thomas

I specifically created a small painting (8"x10") to show that a small intimate piece can have a great impact. I did this, in part, because most of the pieces that have recieved a lot of attention in ArtPrize have been very large. By doing a small piece I hope to show that small pieces can be very engaging too. I am hoping that my painting will be thought-provoking and will engage the viewer's imagination. The goal is for the viewer to create their own whole story around the image; and then perhaps a second or third interpretation for the image. The more someone thinks about the painting the more successful it is. More importantly, the more people think about the image the more they understand the power of art and the beauty of an event like ArtPrize.
