I’m never satisfied! I didn’t like the realistic painted face. I wanted to try something new and these small test pieces are the perfect place to be brave. It’s also really fun to paint over and vandalise your own work! 😂 It’s definitely given me some food for thought 🧠 I call this style “Trashthetics” I’m coining that by the way.
"The Other Woman"
Bold minimalistic color palette,
nuanced face expression
super silky black background that curdles
All of the composition,
And a painting that makes
A right balanced mix between
pop art motives And neo expressionism
The beuty and the deep…
W140cm X H 70cm
Archival pigment selected print

One of my early tryouts with painting,media,computer mix. What does it mean to be an artist and what can be considered as art? Experimental endeavor time fuelled by my( blessed) ignorant naive approach to this all artist -art issue. The human face expression, alongside the symbolic boats, water, shadows and umbrella attracted me to further investigate the potential of this piece. SO GLAD I DID!
Enjoy, and please share your thoughts.

Just a colourfull sketch for the fun...(?) i just love those free sketches with no limits- just let your hand move. go to my web for more www.shookroon.com
"optimistic's" painting ( viewed in my https://www.shookroon.com/copy-of-portfolio website), which was mostly painted with primitive word 97 paint - well, it was the beginning of my journey - taught me a lot.
Here is a fabric of rugged human characters attending live jazz concert, and due to the limitation of the painting format, it came out quiet unique. I cannot wait printing this visual in large scale . realy.
cannot repeat that visu-sketch , though, I am to sophisticated today...pity for me. IMHO
One theme always bounces back while painting; the need, extreme need to be free from constrains.
Side story of the evolving "full moon" painting, has caught my eye and hart and led me to paint this pastoral naive moment where everything looks in place. The lake's color with the shadowed green and white made an exceptional aesthetic treat. [I might even free the purple bird. Have not decided yet if the bird is contributing the moment or interfering…need time to evaluate.
And the words of my small by age, daughter Rona still echoing inside my head "father, why is he naked.." Really why? Enjoy.
