my first painting… “manta ray, laser eyes : killing a building”

March 31, 2009 at 4:18 am (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , )

So I’ve finally made my first painting.  And I’m going to keep doing it.  I had a vision of this and I got together with some friends to have a painting night.  We were productive and we had a great time.

My first painting is called “manta ray, laser eyes : killing a building”.  I didn’t come up with the “killing a building” part but Dave did and it fits well.  Thanks Dave.

I don’t think it really needs any explanation.  The manta ray has his motives.  If you want to ask him, go ahead.  But be warned.

I really enjoyed painting with acrylics.   Now that I’ve got the stuff I want to try to do this at least every 2 weeks or so.   Will the ocean attack on land again?  We shall see…

    Hi Kelly,

    I found your site while researching manta rays. Your painting is awesome and inspired me to take a different angle for my own project. Thanks for the lightbulb!

    I know no one has commented on your painting in a few yrs but, like someone else said, I found it while searcing for Manta Ray monsters. I love it!!!! I only wish I had a better pic of it straight on, since the pic here is a little askew. BUT! It’s great!
