Well I was going to wait and post this one once it was finished, but I have been so busy with other stuff that I have not had much time to scratch in the past month! And to let you guys know I have not been totally inactive I figured I would post it ;)

Anyways size is 20"x12", though it is on a 16"x20" board, so I might not crop it quite like I have it here. There will be some foreground to it, and possibly some background as well.

I can't wait until I have time to get back to scratching! But I have an art fair next weekend, so I have to prepare for that this coming week!

Good to know you haven't been a lazy so and so...:D Just joking!!!

This is too awesome, I always love how you make things appear much larger than they really are. I first guessed this was around the 2 foot by 3 foot mark!

Looking forward to more Cathy!!:)

Great start Cathy. You're going to make us guess what he's staring at, aren't you? OK, we're game....let the guessing begin.:confused:

I love your "less is more" approach to this Cathy. Truly a beautiful work of art on the go here. My eye is immediately drawn to that eye. Waiting for the story to unfold

Incredible lighting, Cathy! It really sets the mood for this piece. I will be following along for sure. :thumbsup:

not much of WIP, but I am pretty much ready to call this one done. I ended up using the whole 20"x16" board. Photo is not very good as it is not sprayed yet and picking up quite a bit of glare.

Some minor teaks (which may be hard to notice) and I am ready to call this guy done (though not sprayed yet). Sorry for the big copyright- am posting this image to facebook as well.

As usual a beautiful finish. But what never ceases to amaze me is how your starts nearly always look like they could be finishes as well!
