Melancholy by Pika-la-Cynique Melancholy by Pika-la-Cynique
aka "the Melancholy Sausage."
(^^; Not really but that's what my classmates were calling it.)
(that, and "dude, what kind of bad trip were you on?")

That blue Sunday afternoon feeling... with a rather surreal twist of inspiration (this was painted within a few days of my "weird thing" sketch...)



All my recent GirlsNextDoor-induced watchers are gonna freak out, huh? ^^;


Acrylic on cardboard, 70cmx50cm approx.

This kind of reminds me of Stephen Gammell's style. What do Sanguine, Choleric, and Phelgmatic look like?

One half of me is going "awesome!" and the other half is going "...back away slowly...sloooowly..."
This is delightfully confounding. I adore it.

Bravo! je trouve ça vraiment excellent. Très juste et sensible. Dégageant une certaine Tiédeur (sans doute les bleus contre-balancés par les tons chair). Cette mollesse qui transforme l'homme en quelque chose de proche du poisson hors de l'eau, hors de la vie, écrasé par la conscience du temps qui ne passe plus. Les heures lentes. Un morceau de caoutchouc tiède dans les heures lentes du dimanche après midi.

"Je sais tes oeuvres: tu n’es ni froid ni bouillant. Que n’es-tu froid ou bouillant! – Mais parce que tu es tiède, et non froid ou bouillant, je vais te vomir de ma bouche."
Apocalypse, III, 15-16

Une superbe réussite que cette peinture! j'applaudis :)

A perfect grasp of melancholy - a mixture of sadness, loneliness, laziness and waiting for SOMETHING. I can almost feel a heavy sigh.

Lovely pale colors, the light and the "all-feelness" of the painting. A brilliant piece indeed, lad!

I love the atmosphere! It's dreary, but not too heavily sad. It feels a lot like a light fog of sadness...

It certainly does create a melancholy feeling--who says sausages don't have bad days? XD

But really, it's a sort of sad kind of pretty. And that's good. :heart:

that's so me. the face is perfect. when the mood hits, everything melts.

LOVE the room - the rough, handpainted style - and the color is spot on. reminds me of some of the old houses of my dusty, small village youth.
