It’s at this point during a painting when it beings to reveal itself. I pick a spot on the subject and begin to render slowly out from it. At this point I can tell if the painting is working or not and if I should continue.

I think it’s working well and I will continue it. I have a business trip starting tomorrow so I will have to finish this one tonight.

I am an Artist and a programmer currently living in the amazing state of Washington. I have a passion for art, but I'm stubborn as hell with it. My day is complete only when I do some piece of art each day, no matter how small. "There was a dream that was Rome. You could only whisper it. Anything more than a whisper and it would vanish, it was so fragile."
