The fact that you are not an artist (your words) is
the key here. You have just gone and done it and it
reveals the essence of Jandek, well at least for me

I think the most successful works are:

You have captured the feel of the photo, but also
reducing all the detail of the photo by your method of
painting till only the essence of the image is left,
creating a bleak abstract painting of the photo.

Ready for the house
The painting has increased the garishness of the
photo. Creating a harsh emotional place.

Well done
