A paradigm is twenty cents.

Frankly, I'll see your paradigms and raze you a Berlin Wall.

Funny line, yours PD. :D:D:D

Great concept. Only thing I would recommend is, unless you have a reason to make it really jump, I would paint the traffic sign with some small amount of texture as well as the surrounding area.

Neat stencil effects. Poignant theme.

P.D. Dinkles,
What a shame it is that confining walls are built, not only with bricks
and mortar but also minds that are oft cluttered with self imposed
obstacles that can make the clear path ahead impenetrable. Intense,
searching and well painted! :)

My friends, everyone, I thank you for your review of this work that was in progress for a long time. I decide to say something and the message embeds itself. When my God Father was dying of Alhazmers, I used memories that did not seem to connect. But I persisted. I presented it to his widow and it evoked meaning I barely expected. The painting is Requiem and should be posted. It appears to be a very plain picture. The large empty chair represents my God Father's absence. The bottle is a mental image I snapped of him on Christmas Eve 1953. I could have said more but it might have diluted the love.

This painting is an angry painting from the Occupy campaigns. I was frustrated by past attempts to change things and left an environment of infrastructure collapse except for the One Way sign.
