SEA SLUG – NEMBROTHA PURPUREOLINEATAA photorealist painting of a poisonous sea slug

Photorealism painting | Sea slug
One of Bert’s very earliest paintings. This cunt of a friend of his asked him to paint it.

Then when he had done it, he didn’t want it.

Bert has often wondered what the fuck is wrong with people? When people would ask for him to create something just for them when they know he would be reluctant to do that particular piece of art. What’s in it for him?

Oh we’ll pay you. Yeah right. So many times has Bert Ernie been fucked over by people with no fucking ethics.
Dimensions: 51x61cm.
Painted: 1999.

The story behind Sea slug

I painted this for a friend, who subsequently didn’t want it. It’s a very early painting and was rather easy to do; it required some imagination in terms of enlarging the hard-cropped source image.
