"St. Tommy Wiseau"...

Well, it's not nearly done, but I thought I'd post what I have so far for my St. Tommy Wiseau piece.  I haven't touched it in over a week... I might get back on it later tonight, or in the next few days.  If you're wondering, the brown thing on his chest is going to be a "sacred football", and the crown of roses will have thorns, and he's going to be bleeding from his head.  I will gold leaf the halo, and add the Latin translation of "You are tearing me apart, LISA!".  The rest will just be touchups and details, I think.  The painting looks better IRL than it does in this photo - hopefully I can capture a better pic once it's completed.  These are just the flats and basic shading.  It's acrylic on canvas.

Still not going crazy because of COVID-19.  Got splashed by a car passing by too close to the curb while on my way to a Dollarama, screamed "FUCK YOU, ASSHOLE!" - but other than that and some mild night time anxiety and occasional bouts of loneliness, it hasn't been so bad.  I was so stunned from quarantine and getting splashed that it took me 5 minutes to realize, once I was indoors, that I still had an open umbrella above my head.  Add to that my cybergoth mask and pigtails, and I'm sure I looked like a street mime on acid.  This has affected me to some degree, but only in that it makes me a little out of it from how surreal the world is.  I remain hopeful.

Seeing as I have the culinary skills of a field soldier (I am accustomed to dining out, usually) it's been stuff like canned soup, raw vegetables and pasta for me, when I don't get take out.  I made Kraft Dinner for the first time in eons, and was reminded of this skit:

"Fattening up our tapeworms!"

It's not that it's not in me to be a good cook, it's just that I don't enjoy the process enough to give it much attention.  When I cook with others, it's kind of fun, but living alone... I hate it.  So I almost always get take out.

I'll post the finished painting once it's completed.  Art has still been rather incremental for me, even under quarantine.
