Always Smiling, All The Time by xCINNx Always Smiling, All The Time by xCINNx
I was wrong to stay angry. You are right, Chan. Thank you. I've been kind of in and out lately, And I haven't said much, but last Friday I started drawing skulls out of nowhere. I don't know how to draw skulls, but I keep doing it anyway. Now I'm getting pretty good at it. I started doing it when I got angry, and it was the closest thing I had to words. For this reason, I thought of calling it "Portrait Of Authority". what little love I have left, I give to my dear friend Stacey, who was the inspiration for this. "My shoes hurt, too". :heart:

It's funny (meaning odd, here) the reactions I have had to this. A friend at work that only recently has taken an interest in my hand musings called it "Was it worth it?". Then he came up with about four more titles, all giving me what he took away from seeing it. I didn't have the heart to tell him that the title was in my head at the very first seven or eight lines. I love what you have said here, and I want to tell you why. My hand was wandering, as my mind panicked and ran aground. I told an ex-lover once that he died, and in dying gained an eternal smile. And in doing so, was more loved than ever before. It was a whole story, about myself, and I have hidden my sketch of it. A self portrait. I don't really draw skulls ever. I don't know how to. But it seems that whenever I get very angry, I want to draw nothing but skulls. So.....something happened. Something very bad. And I guess this was my immediate reaction. But it is like my own mind, a total abstraction of events. And what others see is so wonderfully subjective. I thought to never show it to anyone other than my beloved friend, that this was really for before my hand touched the page. I gave it to her yesterday (the original) and then I cried for a bit. If I had done something more didactic, I feel that showing it would be pointless. I love that my story and everything I have just said is totally irrelevant to all but two people. The art now belongs to others, as it should. I love to think that the artist in any useful artwork is at least 40 percent the viewer. What started for me as petty, followed by trepidation, and finished by regret, has given itself it's own name. And that is such a joy to me. It now lives it's own life now, and I feel a proud parent.
Thank you, so much my friend.
I ask only one favour.....

Oh, the first one I did is totally cute. Not really human at all. It was my attempt to draw a skull, then they poured out like dirty dirty water!
