Painting for my life

The paintings are coming along, slowly, but I'm not sure I should be putting so much into one of them, it's not really shaping into anything but the ideas I have are fairly good and could become something interesting.

This project was about exploring the human form but is mutating into an exploration of ideas around the human form.

These are how the paintings are going right about now.

Comments, please?

Interesting, both.
All the hands are a little creepy to me...almost like a molestation nightmare.
The blue breasts seem to be under an x-ray. Interesting.

the painting with all the hands is extraordinary. i thought so when you showed it in a earlier stage but I didnt comment.

Thanks Lynn and Suki, the hands painting is called "Hands On" and its about how people always have an idea about what you should be doing with your life, and are always pushing and pulling you in the directions they want you to go. It's somewhat how I've been feeling recently.

The blue breasts one is something that is going to be a long work is progress, and has aspects of identity and sexuality in it.

Thank you both for the positive feedback.
