What if all women were bigger and stronger than you? And thought they were smarter? What if women were the ones who started wars? What if too many of your friends had been raped by women wielding giant dildos and no K-Y Jelly? What if the state trooper who pulled you over on the New Jersey Turnpike was a woman and carried a gun? What if the ability to menstruate was the prerequisite for most high-paying jobs? What if your attractiveness to women depended on the size of your penis? What if every time women saw you they’d hoot and make jerking motions with their hands? What if women were always making jokes about how ugly penises are and how bad sperm tastes? What if you had to explain what’s wrong with your car to big sweaty women with greasy hands who stared at your crotch in a garage where you are surrounded by posters of naked men with hard-ons? What if men’s magazines featured cover photos of 14-year-old boys with socks tucked into the front of their jeans and articles like: “How to tell if your wife is unfaithful” or “What your doctor won’t tell you about your prostate” or “The truth about impotence”? What if the doctor who examined your prostate was a woman and called you “Honey”? What if you had to inhale your boss’ stale cigar breath as she insisted that sleeping with her was part of the job? What if you couldn’t get away because the company dress code required you wear shoes designed to keep you from running? And what if after all that women still wanted you to love them? — For The Men Who Still Don’t Get It, Carol Diehl (via oitheresawargoingonhere)

Rightso. I think I might actually be… maybe… done. I don’t know. Hm. Oil on canvas. 2’ x 3’.
So this is what took my time during the spool hiatus. The theory is that I’m making the mundane majestic, and the grandiose miniscule.
So yeah, the whole “updating consistently” thing kinda failed. In my defense, I had to paint 3 more paintings and missed two weeks of school. So… yeah. Working on the contrast on the plastic part of the spools. Oil on canvas. 2’ x 3’.
Almost done! I can see the end! Just a few more bumps and things to clean up and lightening up the bottom part a bit. Sorry for taking so long - Tumblr has been finicky. Oil on Canvas. 2’ x 3’.
Sorry guys for not posting so often. I realize I’ve skipped a few days, but honestly, the progress isn’t visible on the camera. I’m cleaning up borders and fixing the bottom part of the spool. I messed up the ellipse and one side is much smaller than the other. And yes, I realize the picture is upside-down. It makes it easier to work on the bottom part because when it’s right-side-up, I have to crouch to get to it. Oil on Canvas. 2’ x 3’.
