This was done for a woman named Andrea Klatt. She never got it though. Wish I could have given it to her though, though I guess it's pretty low quality. If I see Andrea again, I'll have to paint her something new.
Given to All Nations Youth Safe House in Jan 2009 instead.
To answer any questions that might arise:
- Why frogs? Frogs were one of Andrea's favourite animals apparently, or what she requested.
- No that is not blood it is paint
- It is the sun on the ground she painted, a sun ritual to celebrate a new day
- The frogs both have the sun painting on them too, they are from the "Sun Clan"
- The frogs are anthropomorphic too.
- The white/clear shit on the painting in the Gel Matte and Modeling Paste that PROMISED to come out clear but didn't. Medium:
