i’m enjoying my art fix and hope you are too. tomorrow’s posts will be different (i promise), but in the meantime look at these charming naive-outsiderish acrylic works from connecticut artist r. gene barbera. i like these pieces for breaking from traditional formal portrait style. i enjoy the rough simplicity, and variety of brush strokes and bright tones of color too, and the strange feeling of humor i get from them.

and i like the big heads.

the link to gene’s website appears to be broken right now, but you can see more and purchase gene’s work (at intensely affordable prices!) right here.
