Dear 10 followers of my art,
Its been a busy here on the Cape, hence my lack of consistent picture making. However in my free time I've been going back through my archives and pulling out the old works that were not finished and touching them up until they look puuuurty. The picture below, I started as a birthday present to my very conservative minded friend. I must have changed the background about 10 times and played with as many color choices as possible, until I finally decided on the current one.
One interesting side note is that this painting is done on top of gold leaf. The iridescent quality of the picture is fun. Especially since His hair and underwear are the true gold leaf, and they both shimmer in the sunlight.
:) Happy belated birthday E-Man, I'll be sending this to you soon enough.
