Johnny Depp is using his newly launched Instagram page to share some of his priceless pieces of art — and this one he has been working on for over 14 years!
The ‘Pirates of The Caribbean’ star took to Instagram to share a painting that he says has sat unfinished for over 14 years, and he is now going to work on finishing it.
The piece of art is a painting of a wine bottle with the backdrop appearing to be the actor’s home — and by the looks of it the actor has some skills in the painting department.
Take A Look!
“It’s odd, the things that we once gave such pure, intense focus and devotion to for months on end. Then suddenly the wind shifts and off we go on a new tack. And for far too long, these earlier interests or passions sadly fall by the wayside and recede into the vast recesses of some hoarder’s crawlspace in the brain cloaked in heaps of the other things that my skull had no room for…until recently,” the ‘Pirates’ actor captioned the picture.
He continued, “I found this painting, which I had started in 2006 … for 14 years I’d never touched the painting – the occasional glance, at best. Yet it somehow always lingered in my mind, this piece of unfinished business.”
Johnny seems to then address the time he has to do such projects due to the outbreak of the Coronavirus.
“Even while we are forced to live in the immediate, some strange species of the interrupted passion that has been invested in an object we once focused on awaits our return from far away,” he wrote.
In the end, he says, “I will keep you apprised of the progress!”
This is the second piece of art Depp has shared with his fans since joining Instagram. Several weeks ago, Johnny posted a picture of himself holding a guitar, in front of a giant painting of his dead dog, Mooh.
“The painting on the wall is one I made of an old friend… My old dog, Mooh, who sadly passed away back when i was away on-location filming, “Public Enemies”. He was a very gentle boy and i still miss him greatly!!!!” he said of the painting.
As we reported, Johnny Depp is at legal war, on several fronts, with his ex-wife Amber Heard. The actor sued Heard for defamation in Virgina after he says the actress claimed she was the victim of domestic violence.
The case is headed to trial this summer.
