"Dvorak is Nuts!", 5"x 7"acrylic painting by Nitrozac *SOLD!*
This Painting has been sold! Thanks mouser3ovl! Click here to view the auction.
Feast your eyes on the 14th painting of my Painting A Day Blog! For a small painting it packs a lot of punch! "Dvorak is Nuts!" commemorates the moment when John C. Dvorak seemed to snap, while on a TWiT podcast. He predicted, with astonishing passion, that Apple computer is going to ditch the Mac OS for Microsoft Windows. That moment is captured in this comic of the Joy of Tech. Now that moment has been immortalized as a painting. And now, you could own that painting!
I had the idea to paint this image after noticing that the "Dvorak is Nuts!" button on our webstore is a surprisingly popular choice for TWiT fansalmost as popular as the Leo Laporte button. Who woulda thought? Maybe it's the straightjacket? Whatever it is, I must acknowledge that TWiT fans have great taste.
As far as Dvorak's prediction goes, it hasn't happened yet. Time will tell, if Dvorak is a techno prophet, or just plain nuts. In the meantime, you can own this beautiful painting, gaze at it, and contemplate its multi-layered meaning. As a work of art, it is strangely attractive, for some reason, you just have to touch it and admire it from an aesthetic standpoint. I find it hard to take my eyes off it, even after having carefully applied each brushstroke for hours.
I hope you too will go nuts for this painting and bid like a madman! This painting demands to be owned! Good luck!
