Thanks! I'm actually working on my second one now. Hopefully Ill be able to post it tonight. Oil dries so slow! I'm used to that Acrylic, but I love the richness and vibrance of oil, and its easier to blend colors.

well its gone through many changes since I first painted it. I believe this was the first, if you click on my page it looks totally different now, lol. But it usually takes around 4 hours on average when I paint but thats just the first stage. The longer the painting stays in my possession the more I enhance it til either its sold or im personally satisfied. Thanks for the compliment!

Thanks so much George! im really a big fan of your work as well! I really respect and honor your comments. My style is definitely against everything I was taught in any art class, lol. I do believe I give my professors migrains at times. I just approach art as a freedom that I want to express not influenced by others who have done this before me, also I dont sketch anything(unless it stays in that medium)...I just dive right in. I dont apropriate the size and space of what im creating, I just let it create itself. I find the joy in exploring my own ways of achieving certain styles and techniques. Im just glad you guys can appreciate that. Doing this my way, I will always learn something new and hopefully I can produce some quality work in the process.
