Fortuitous Nonsense

Here is my "Spaghetti Symphony" painting, entitled, "Bauble of Baron Loss". You can read a slightly detailed account of its creation on my blog...
This is the blind scribble from which the final image emerged; it was drawn while listening to Don Henley's "Boys of Summer". It's weird to think that anything could be made out of that chaos, but the key to one of many happy accidents can be found in the lower right-hand corner--which looked rather like a heart to me...

Dig it Ian. You said you saw the heart in the lower corner, but did you force yourself to see the character in your scribbles or did you just paint him in on top?

I particualarly like his hair - blotches of color from dark to light.

Looks great Ian. I can't quite make it all out - but it seems inspired by what you may have first seen in the scribbles. This guy is quite the dramatic fellow.
