EARLY PAINTINGS
DARRIN ANDREW LA MORTE


Charlie & Me

____________________________

This is my first painting ever. It is entitled: "Colours".

The history of the painting is.
I painted this late one night after returning home from

living in Holland.
The colours used were that of the TV colour bar.
I was watching a movie, a lighting storm had interrupted the show.
And you see, the TV had these really bright colours shinning into my eyes.

So I got up and painted them excatly as they were shown.
The detail in this painting,
is the box like feeling, you get from just starring at it.
I like it very much.
However, this painting is not for sale.
