There's an ominous feeling about it, which I like.

thank you for your comments... dragoni689 i haven't skated since i was a kid. it's kinda hard when you have bad knees. and of course i know where burnside is... i take it you are talking where saturday markt is?

This is great, very solomn like. Is your muse tired of trying to make you work? *joking* I really love this.

Thank you all for your wonderful comments. It is definately a big boost to my confidence to read that people are enjoying my worlk.

Also the inspiration for this came from a very good friend of mine. This friend is always sending me links, email attachments, and the like of things I would have never found on my own. Thus escentially being somewhat of a muse. Which got me thinking about the relationship between muse and artist. Where sometimes the artist takes the inspiration from a muse and is almost worshiped for what is created. While a muse seems to only be immortalized in the work.

Thank you again

very pleasing piece to me ... i love the dripping paint ... been experimenting with that lately myself ... i really enjoy how it layers the colors to make such vibrant browns, almost pointilist, but without the anal retention lol

i like your signature, too ... i use that quote on my website
