I create to affect people's brain-minds – to make thinkins happen, cause reactions, skew things, maybe crack some smiles. I create ruckus in viewers' thoughts – I make things a bit odd, bit funny, bit scary, bit gross. I create playfully odd characters with exaggerated limbs and noses and circle eyes; drips, spits, bloods, and kiddo-friendly art, too. Look and think and see what focuses, what makes sense, what doesn't make sense. Look. Think. Process. React. I made your brainmind tinker – I did that.

'Ductling' acrylic on canvas, 30"x40" artist: Brian Finn artist website: www.BrianFinnInk.com

'Ductling,' is a painting finished in late February of 2016. I worked on it an hour here, an hour there every couple-few weeks since the previous summer, but the painting was actually started about five years before that...
In 2010, it started as a painting of a duck popping through a piece of bread. I finished, but didn't like it, so I did as I do with all paintings I don't like -- I blacked out the canvas. This one, I liked the duck bill, so everything but the eyes and the bill was blacked out. It sat untouched for five years until Summer 2015. I slapped it up on the easel, stared at it a while, broke out brushes, and painted a fresh composition in white.
Color takes me a while because I'm self-taught and mess up a lot, plus I've become a perfectionist, so... TIME.

Here it is, completed: 'Ductling,' a painting of a baby duck in diapers shaking a rattle and shooting milk from its nipple. Acrylic on canvas, 30"x40." Prints now available at my Etsy shop via this link: http://etsy.me/1M47ptE
