Expression


This is a piece that I've been working on, in fits and starts, for the past two years. Recently, I found the inspiration to take up the challenge again. This painting is a perfect example of not being talented enough, initially, to create the image I wanted to. So two years later and lots of repainting and ruminating finds me here. I think it's coming along quite nicely now.

There is a lot of significant imagery in this painting, and some more subtle in nature. I'm still working on it and will glaze it with colour eventually. In the meantime, I'm trying to get some comments or constructive criticism on it. This is proving to be more difficult than I thought. My usual forums for posting have been relatively quiet about this piece, and those who have replied are congratulatory, but not offering anything constructive. I guess I'll keep working away, and keeping a eye out for peer group of like-minded artists. I guess I have to get out more and mingle.

Thanks for stopping by.

Love this. Kind of reminds me a bit of Jon Foster.
