Level heads, where are you?


"Showing Restraint"
30 x 22 (36 x 28 framed)
Collage
$1130

I wish folks could show some restraint... I'm so tired of people shouting over each other and not listening. What happened to respectful dialog? Or even agreeing to disagree? I know that emotion can be a good thing, but not when it escalates bad behavior, builds walls, and stymies dialog.

Level heads....where are you?

And that's as close to political commentary that you'll get from me. aaaarrrrgggggh!

Love this, Lauren! The painting and the thoughts....
I like to think I'm level headed, but I have been known to have the odd "blow up! They are few and far between though! ;-)

Lauren said...

Hee He Heee Fookie... Thanks

Patty...thanks... I'd like to think I'm level headed too... just don't get me mad. :D

Hey Lauren, I love this piece! Coolness! Did you paint that piece in a state of frustration? Such strength!

Too in-touch with my inner flake to be level headed...working on it though!

Lauren said...

Hi Peggy~ How are you? Thanks for your compliments... You can see that the bands that are doing the "restraining" aren't that substantial. ;)

Here here! I am in total agreement with this sentiment. And I really like the colors, shapes and energy of this piece.

Lauren said...

Hi Sherry!
Thanks for chiming in! I'm wondering if all the respectful people don't make for good "entertainment.".... Sigh. Thanks!
