This piece has been in the slow lane over the last few months. Maybe you'll recognize him from a few posts back but he's going to be on the front page of the blog for a while. Finally updated my header after, what, 6 years? ha. When I started this piece I was very hung up on painting, not so much the process I love but what surrounds it and what my motivation for painting is. I paint what I love and I love competitions, for the new friends and for the motivation brought by some healthy competition. Many things are about reaching your own personal best. With this piece I wanted to paint something and keep competitions out of my head, to paint something for the simple joy of painting, which has brought me to where I am today. I finished him leading up to the Crystal Brush but told myself not to enter him. Just put him in my own cabinet :) Maybe he'll come to Gencon with me in the future.
Gotta love that Rackham style! Enjoy!
He's also found a little space on Coolmini, cast a vote if that tickles your fancy.
