This painting is about that feeling when you consume something that is bad for you. There was a time I at some rotisserie chicken from the grocery store and it gave me food poisoning and I remember laying there with this horrible feeling in my stomach that there was something in there that was wrong and was going to violently make its way out. I also feel this way after a night of drinking - that awful feeling of having poisoned yourself. Its not always food and drink though. Sometimes I scroll through facebook or one of the other social media platforms and just feel completely negative. It could be trash TV or a person that causes the acid inside you.
I was really excited to use a chartreuse color in this painting and I love the way it paired with that deep purple. I've been experimenting with skin tone lately and the flesh tone in the face is quite bit cooler than usual, but I'm happy with it and I really enjoy the saturation.
