The dark alley where feminism, autism advocacy and literary criticism meet.
Now, this wasn't assigned. The painting below is of a subject I freely chose.
Yes, it is the first thing that caught my eye. It was painted with those very same paints, too! How's that for recursion?
Did I mention I'm literal-minded?
Those are cool! I especially like the crayons, they really look like they have that sorta dusty-feeling paper wrappers :)I always liked doing those recursive "drawing the medium that's being drawn with" type things.
It sounds like the instructor meant for you to paint the crayons literally... but I wonder if anyone else painted something different?I, too, can be very literal which causes problems since others are not so... It causes a little stress, sometimes. In fact, I can imagine myself sitting there wondering, "well she said paint the crayons but did she MEAN paint the crayons?" LOL
SavedAspie, what you said reminds me of something someone was telling me about drill sargeants. That they have to learn how to give brief, unambiguous instructions. I thought, what would the teacher do if someone walked up and started painting the crayons, as in, applying paint to the crayons themselves? I thought that was funny.
I like your paintings. I probably would have said, "Do you mean I should actually apply paint to these crayons?"!
