The Ugly Duckling
This is my Ugly Duckling, one of my fantasy freaks surrounded by the real thing. Once I was closing in to the final stages of this painting, I felt that there was something missing, thus the runny color in the top of the painting. The color is there for a purpose, not for decoration. In the best and most idyllic worlds there are still things that shouldn't be - ostracism being one such thing. I wanted to wash out that kind of behavior. Oil and acrylic on canvas, 128 x 128 cm.
