As you know, I like to paint directly on photos. I found an old beat-up movie still from the 1956 B-classic, “Earth vs. the Flying Saucers.” The photos had some wear and damage so I mounted it carefully on a heavy mat board and then painted it. Added some flames along the fence line in the back. Gotta love the 1950’s and their phallic robots.
About this piece

This artwork is sealed under varnish

So, you know how certain churches go door to door and want to find out where you’re at spiritually? I live in Holy Toledo and we seem to have a little more than our fair share of people knocking on our door wanting to sell me Jesus. Now, I am never rude. In fact, I listen, ask questions, and am polite. I am a lifelong atheist but I’m certainly not knocking anyone else for believing. I just don’t want to be involved.
One day two women came by and they were giving me the spiel about saving my immortal soul, yadda yadda yadda and then a woman told me that she would tell me how to pray.
She asked if that is why I didn’t believe in God wasn’t it? My prayers didn’t get answered! Well, she told me if you do not hold your fingers straight, perfectly STRAIGHT – God doesn’t listen. If you intertwine and fold your fingers, well you’re just praying to yourself she told me with a knowing smile.
Now you know.
That inspired this and about 4 other artworks that live in happy homes – this is the last one. She’s praying properly and there are old Christian symbols around the piece.

A really depressing statistic shows 1 in 5 women will experience rape in her lifetime. That’s unacceptable. Not matter what I am wearing (not wearing), I am still not asking for it.
This piece is acrylics, gouache, ink, and watercolors painted directly on a vintage photo. I like to call them “improved photos.” This vintage photo is from around 1920 and is mounted in a few layers of chipboard and heavy card stock. It came to me like this so I am unsure of when the mounting of the photo took place.
