I am calling these two paintings done
they have taken an embarrasingly long amount of time to finish
perhaps someone can help me figure out what the hell is wrong with me
(or at least with my paintings)

The emptiness of it has grown on me,
I initially had all kinds of ideas for filling the background space with extra crap (sattelites, army men, explosions etc.) but everything I added seemed to detract from it...

just 'finished this sucker yesterday. Its a diptych.

-I kind of feel like I'm placing things on the canvas rather awkwardly,
the main images are so big and negative space is all around...

crits, comments... please.
and thank you
