Late last night I finished what was then an untitled painting. I'm so pleased with it. It's not because I think it's amazing or something crazy like that (I do enjoy looking at my work) but because in it I can see tangible results from the time I've put towards painting in the last 6 months or so. I'm improving, sometimes slowly and others fast. I look at this piece and can say, "yes, I'm getting better at this." and that is satisfying.

I hope you enjoy viewing this as much as I enjoyed painting it. On to thumbnailing my next painting!

Daily Deviation

Given 2014-08-05
An illustration with a story to tell and a rather simple yet clever composition that draws your attention to the right spot.

This scene invokes a certain feeling that I think words can't fully describe. The closest I can come up with is, majestic, mystical,rustic& warm. I love it very much great work as always!
