Check out the close-up of texture. I just love working with texture and it's been a while since I have. It's good to be back.
Artists face a lot of opposition on the road to success. I don't think I've arrived at that nebulous destination of success; I am very much still on the road. For me, opposition is a necessary part of painting and I channel it through pieces like Angst. If I don't experience the highs and lows of life, the emotional aspect of my art is weak. Frustration is therefore a curse and a blessing for me.
I feel that this painting needs a bit more, but it's close. I enjoy reading your comments. Thanks for all that you've been leaving.
