Florida-based artist Doug Bloodworth is a photorealist painter whose works are influenced by American western classics.
His oil paintings are unbelievably realistic and feature old-school snacks together with classic comics that are sure to bring back a sense of nostalgia.
Bloodworth begins his painting on a blank canvas, without the help of grids and each artwork can take him over two months to complete.
WHAT THE FUCK
Happy 90th birthday, Betty Joan Perske, a.k.a Lauren Bacall (16.09.1924) -
“I’m not ashamed of what I am - of how I pass through this life. What I am has given me the strength to do it. At my lowest ebb I have never contemplated suicide. I value what is here too much. I have a contribution to make. I am not just take up space in this life. I can add something to the lives I touch. I don’t like everything I know about myself, and I’ll never be satisfied, but nobody’s perfect. I’m not sure where the next years will take me - what they will hold - but I’m open to suggestions.”
Thank you, John Oliver, for taking down the “she’s someone’s daughter/sister/mother” thing at the root. I get the intention behind it is not bad, but seriously-my value as a human should not be defined by how my being hurt would affect my father, brother, or male partner. It should be defined by how it would affect ME. I am someone with worth and value independent of the men in my life, as are all women. We are not tangential sub-people who only exist as we are related to me, we are people. Full stop.
