It has been a while since my last post, but a lot has been happening in my life. I went to Paris, got engaged, have been doing loads of overtime at work, and I've been making up excuses to relax instead of taking a picture of my work. Anyway, here is my latest painting. This is another project for Running with Paintbrushes. It is greatly based on the Unicorn in Captivity tapestry at the Cloisters museum, right down to the tuft of hair at the end of it's tail. I am really happy with how this piece came out. The color scheme that I have been working with is greatly improving my art (in my opinion). I hope you all like this, because I am going to try my darndest to push this feeling, style, and level of detail further with my future work. It may be a while til my next post, since I am working on things that I need to keep secret for a little while. I will try to post some sketches or something in the meantime.
