Mission Nurse

Image

Mission Nurse I found this image and was drawn to it for a few reasons. I think the nurse is extremely creepy. Nurses have always scared me and now that my husband is one, well i still dont care for them. I consider them all “Angels of Death” ever since I learned there was a name for nurses that kill people. (BTW my husband is a GREAT nurse I actually do trust him, to an extent :)) I thoroughly enjoy the visible brushstrokes and patches of paint that give the sense of shades and highlights. I also found a battlestar gallactica text image by Richard Prince but I couldnt get it to upload due to extreme sleepyness. There are quite a few of these style paintings with nurses as the subject matter. I like to look at them but I know I could NEVER have them in my house, I would never sleep. PERHAPS that is why I am drawn to them so much because they do scare the creeps out of me. If an image can do that in any way, it is powerful.
