I replaced the old image with a new photo I had an earlier photo of the piece up. A few changes were made so I needed a new photo. This is a 3 dimensional piece acrylic on wood and canvas.

Aww I hope he's gonna be ok! And I hope he wasn't abandoned. *sob

Very powerful image!

Thank you, he is ok. 54 years later he takes care of the woman who found him. My adopted mother is 86 and I just built her an addition on my house for her to spend her last years happily. I learned to be ok with being abandoned then adopted but I have met others who have struggled with being adopted their whole lives.

Wow that makes the drawing even more powerful.

I am a mother, and I don't know why movies and popular media always portrait birth mothers to be the most loving, and how being adopted is a kid's biggest nightmare. Birth parents don't choose their kids, but adoptive parents do. You are such a wonderful son to your mother, I'm so happy for her and you. :)

I’ve featured this artwork in my latest journal [link] Please note me if this causes a problem for you.

Thank you I love doing digital works since they are new to me. I have only been doing them about a year and a half. My first love is painting but the keyboard and mouse are a new brush for me. All my work is done in Photoshop but I have been teaching myself Illustrator. I am also looking for a fractal program that is not to hard to understand. If you have any suggestion I would appreciate the input.
21citrouilles's avatar
For fractal programs that are not too difficult, I would recommend Tierazon and Fractal Explorer, both of which you can google to find them. :)

I will look into them. I have been fascinated by fractal art and some of my images seem fractal like. I like how you combine them with your images.

I don't really enjoy a smack in the face but this is OK and really great stuff. Well chosen and balanced colours, great shapes and, above all, a heck of a lot of symbolic/emotional content.
Many thanks for all your work; you have made an old man very happy :clap:

Thank you John for taking time to look at my work. This is an unusual piece and I am glad you enjoy it. I am still searching for a closer connection visually between my painting and digital works.

Oh my god.. this is so amazing...
it looks great in 2d so I know it must astonishing in person.

great job...
I love all the features of the picture like the snake and the candy cane and i love how you have to search for the baby by looking at the bottle.
great job.

Thank you. I enjoy making the 3 dimensional paintings but they take a lot of time to make. Unlike digital works they are about the object.

yeah.. it really is amazing.. I don't think I could ever get into it.
But I love what you do.
