THEY CALLED HIM DANCING MACHINE painting
Here's a painting of a old guy happy to be alive. This makes me think of 2 selfish wishes I have for myself: (1.) I hope I can live to be a healthy upright old guy like this, and (2.) I hope when I'm that old, I'm happy enough to dance a jig in my underwear. I don't care so much I'm in my right mind as long as I'm happy. Also I hope my wife Mei is there with me. (That makes 3 wishes.)
This painting has the most horrible background. I think it would be a lot better with a circular 2-tone gradient background instead of the hideous rainbow stripes. I want to repaint the background but with the see-thru hair it seems un-fun.
Normally you aren't supposed to point out your mistakes because you call attention to something a person may not have noticed without you directing their eyes toward it. In this case though, with the glowing puke-smear stripes, there ain't no NOT noticing it.
