What is wrong with what I do?

I know, I don't normally update this often, but I have a lot on my mind... and I figure, better to tell you, five of tens of people who may actually read this, than no one at all.

About what… a week ago, I sketched out a friend for one of the larger (for me) oil paintings that I've done in a while. Sketch was done live (as is proper, always better to start these live) then photos were taken so I can finish back at my studio. Some of you might know... Continue Reading →
