04182014 Watercolor and Ink with Bill
I began a project dialing random telephone numbers beginning with area code 512. I asked whomever answered the phone to describe either their best anecdote, a life-changing decision, a childhood memory or simply speak to me about what they were doing at the time….Sometimes I think they were “high brah”.
Bill, was the worst roommate, and laughed uncontrollably (But that wasn’t the reason why.). Bill’s nick name was “The Room”.
“I’m a husky man.” was how he began his story. This image I painted was a depiction of his roommates because…he wished he could see the looks on their faces….because ‘The Room’ ate it….Get it? The room ate it?”.
Bill aka The Room, ate all the groceries and leftovers “….while SMELLING some sherm..Ha Ah HA…sheeee”
“One of them white, they don’t need it.”
“Maybe room be eatin’ mee.”
“I am that kitchen room.”
Bill and I spoke for 15 minutes, and I just assumed his roommates would be thin.
