Here is a new piece fresh off the easel. It's a little larger than I usually do but I've been thinking 'bigger' lately:smug: . The total size is about 16x24. It's called "Use your Imagination". As always comments critiques welcome. There is a blog now linked to the website that has a little more info about the piece, and other stuff, feel free to visit.

Brilliant work! Love the contrasts in colors and textures, excellent metal! Shadows look great, and I just keep going back to the book, it's great!!

What kind of pastels do you prefer? Hard or soft? Brands?

Awesome stuff!

It is a *trompe l'oeil* (a "fool the eye") -- makes me think of the Dutch stuff like it, but very modern. I want to peel off that tape and straighten the piece of paper! :-) How long did it take you? Or maybe the question is: can you sell a bucket of that ocean of patience? :-)

I have a wide assortment on my table, but the meat of my collection is Unison. I have a small collection of Schmicke, Rembrandt, Sennelier, and Girault. I also have Nupastels, Derwent, and Carbothello. Hope that helps. Thanks for all the compliments.

Once again astonished by your level of detail and your wonderful imagination. Every time I see one of your paintings I think...I wished I would have thought of that. :) I love your refreshing style!

I find it interesting the four tacks for the water comeing out of the metal sprayer. I get an alchemical reference. 4 being balance, four elements, four directions. Basically a foundation. The meatal being of the alchemical nature of meatalurgy. Then watering the flower, our innocence. In this world our innocence has almost become an illusion as represented by the flower, drawn with modern tools in a way a child would draw a flower. This piece is good in it's realism and in it's allegory.
