Some Questions Never Get Asked::New Abstract Painting By Lizardo Art

image of grey brown copper abstract painting by lizardo artAbstract Painting by Lizardo Art

The texture in my painting ::Some Questions Never Get Asked:: brings the grays and dark browns to life. A copper drip finishes the artwork, adding interest and dimension. The work measures 8 x 10 x 7/8"

With this work, I intend to explore the idea that some questions are better off
un-asked. Sometimes the answer will be more hurtful than helpful, therefore it is more kind to just leave it alone.

Lately I have been pondering the idea of being nice. Are you really being nice when you do something you don't truly want to do? Is it possible that doing nice things can be a way to manipulate others into liking you?

If you are a nice person who "just wants everyone to be happy", do you find yourself wondering if people like you or the niceness?

For me, the copper represents a melting away of the facade and the fear of what will happen if you say no to someone.
