All About Me by Clamdiggy All About Me by Clamdiggy
This is what can be done with a "skeleton in the closet".  The unfinished painting was dwelling in the dark for years.  Matter of fact I almost threw it away a few times, but I couldn't bring myself to do it.  Here is the old version that still lives under the new paint:

All About Me (throwback version) by Clamdiggy 

Acrylic on canvas board.  Time?  Endless....I didn't pay attention :giggle:

Special thanks goes to my preview crew...:iconlady-dragonrose:  and :icondygyt-alice:  Love ya'll!

Thanks to :iconc0mpassion: for suggesting the DD!

A complex painting. As if it's saying: If you want to know me, you'll have to dig the signs and references in me. I can't resist the propensity of trying to discover letters in the background and following the pointing fingers. 
Maybe this is all the result of too much imagination, but so be it: I had a good time doing so.
I think it's a wonderful painting.

Wonderful painting. Love the composition and it has an astounding 3-d effect. I never throw any of my unfinished work away, even if it is bad, as it may be recoverable when I am old enough to complete it. I think you finish paintings when you are ready, and aren't you glad you held onto this and completed it? You have inspired me to look out some of my cast offs. :happybounce:

Thank you, Mike!  What a fantastic comment!  As far as re-hashing a cast-off...I strongly urge you to do it.  It is a great feeling to finish one of these "skeletons in the closet" as I call them.  Knowing that I have inspired someone else to do so makes it even better!  If you do, I suggest posting the old one beforehand.  This, in a way, made me silently commit to the task - not only to myself, but to others.  If I had not done so, it may still be sitting there with a layer of dust.  (And knowing how I am, I believe it would be :giggle:)

Ahh now that's really nice you finished it Nod  This work looks so awfully good when it's done, the shapes, the lights and shades the rightly-put details on the hands and face, fine color combination, altogether they work to emphasize and elevate the pic's plot. I truly think this this piece is really artistic and perfectly done in both technique and meaning. Wahhh... Anyone would really want to become an artist like you ya knowHug  It's just... really goooood !!

You're totally welcome :D (Big Grin) But really, I always look for artists who can create arts that are perfectly technically done with a deep and clear story behind them. To be honest, your art style and color using and all are somewhat not my type but still I am very very very very very ~♪ attracted to your arts. It's like, If I am walking in a gallery, this pic will be the one makes me stop and burst in a huge laugh because of how well it was done, and I will feel a weird urge to touch it directly with my bare hand. Uhmmm. Now that's really sounds kinda weird. But it's positively weird :happybounce: Really.

You deserve this Sis. How can I tell you how happy I am you cleaned up this work of art.

Geeze now I am beaming about your good luck. This is so cool my friend. Abbie must be going crazy with happiness for you as well. Big smiles all the way around. You do good work but do not expect this when you finally draw Bubbles.:nod:

:rofl: Bubbles is for us, Sis.  Only you and I can appreciate his true deviousness :giggle:  Thanks for keeping me motivated to finish this.  Who would of thought that a messy old painting would end up like this? 

(Psssst....Bubbles will probably be done by the morning!)

I know Bubble is our special pet and nobody else would understand, even your daughter shakes her head in wonder at what we have become at times. I can feel her smiling when she makes her comments. Of course ending it with Auntie Dygyt makes me smile pretty big as well.

That messy old painting is so freaking cool now. You did not just clean it up a little but gave it whole different personality and story. You deserve the DD I am proud of you for getting it Sis I knew it would happen one day because of how talented your are.

:rofl: Bubbles will be done by the morning sounds more like breakfast. Can't wait to see what that creative mind of yours has cooked up. :giggle:

Awww Sis, Thanks!  It took me a while to think about what to do with it.  It really was a mess. A hot mess.  I didn't realize how old it was, but when I cleaned the dust off I had put a tiny '86 in the corner on the back years ago. 

I have been doing yard work all day since it finally dried out enough after two weeks of rain.  So I regret I had to delay Bubbles until tomorrow.  Sorry :(  But, I can say that he is looking mahvelous so far :D

But for now, I am worn out and going to bed.  For once maybe I will sleep more than 3-4 hours.  :hug:

I hope you get some good rest you really need it once in a while I hear.

I know Bubbles is more or less our secret. I mean it's not like we try to hide him, but his deviousness can reign supreme at times. So I am more than happy to knock him down a few pegs when necessary.

I can't wait to see what you have created. I will make sure I go to the bathroom before viewing any art from you tomorrow.

Keeping you motivated when it seems that everything was already sketched out was easy. I could see you creating several works of art and I am really happy you got a DD for it as well. Talent is an asset and my sister has it. Congratulations kiddo, I will talk to you soon. I made it to the Festival today and had fun but will explain more in a note.
