"Yeah!  Ok...wait...Ok...go!"

"YESSSS!!! Eat that sucka!!!"
"Aww man?!  Ok, ok, again!"

I'm always in awe of how kids can grind each other into the dust with competition, in a way that we grown-ups may consider pretty darn rude, and just keep right on whistling a happy tune with their BFFs. I am in love with, and inspired by their candor and resilience. And I love the simplicity of their games.  

This wood panel was blanketed first with the torn, yellowed pages of a novel, then painted over with transparent red/purple acrylic so that the text is readily visible on all sides, as well as in some more transparent areas of the painting.  The image itself is done in oil.  The work comes wired and ready to hang.

Menlo Park, California

Diane Flick is a Bay Area artist who paints quirky portraits of robots with a playful color palette and masterful realism. Each of Diane’s robots expresses its own humanlike and idiosyncratic personality. From an early age, she had a fascination with inanimate objects and often imagined what they would be like with human characteristics. Her portfolio explores the human experience through non-human subjects.
