Hmmm.. shows up on my phone & computer both. Here's a different link though, which I'll edit into the main post up there as well: https://ibb.co/enuos7
Well, can't seem to find a way to edit the main post. But follow the link in the quoted post right above this to see it if you can't otherwise :)

I hope you enjoy your time here Matthew .........
when you post, if you can include size and support on which the paint goes, it helps the viewers!:lol: ....... and any source of inspiration too!:)

Shoot, great idea! Well, for those wondering:

•It's a 16x20 canvas
• Liquitex soft body acrylic paint
• Hog's hair brushes
• Colors include Titanium White, Hooker's Green Hue Permanent, Cobalt Blue, Ivory Black, Burnt Sienna, Cadmium Yellow Light Hue, Cadmium Yellow Deep Hue, Napthol Red Light, and Unbleached Titanium White. There are of course mixtures of those colors strewn throughout but a lot of "straight" colors as well. Moreso than any of my previous work. :)

OH! And inspiration? Picasso's Blue and Rose Periods, and Van Gogh. Definitely tried to give it my own spin though :)

Welcome to the Forum.

As the others have noted this has a really good Van Gogh spin to it.
