Within These Walls

Within These Walls


Within These Walls is an original acrylic painting by Krissy Whiski done on 20 x 24 inch canvas. It is side stapled, however the sides are painted a matching purple, so framing is optional. However I do reccomend getting it framed for a nicer finish.

The concept for this painting came from my childhood home. In the bedroom upstairs, I remembered staring at the burgundy and red velvet damask wallpaper as I tried to sleep at night. I'd try to find images in the floral pattern and my brain would blur and move the images, so that I would see skulls, people's faces and moving images within the patterns. I knew that they really weren't there, but staring long enough, I'd have to convince myself that it wasn't moving. I decided to do this painting as part of my Alice in Wonderland themed paintings, the idea just fit. It's as if the walls could talk, or even listen, if they could, what would you say to them?

This particular painting is from 2008, I have held onto it since then, chosing not to sell it or let it go, rather chosing to hang it in my own home, as it is one of my favorites. Now I am ready to part with it, in hopes it finds the right collector.
