Thanks to Andrew Wyeth I’m paying attention to the smallest details even in the background.

I’m still thinking a lot about texture as I paint and while I’m trying to get the color of the background correct for this painting I’m also experimenting with way to create the texture that I want. Although very subtle, I think the texture is making a huge difference.

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."
