Your work is a little mind boggling. I very much respect your evident patience to deal with the time it would take to do this. Often, realistic or hyper-realistic stuff bores me, even when I respect the work that goes into it, but I find myself looking at your pieces for a long time. Certainly, part of that is my curiosity of how you actually manage to create such detail, but also because unlike many realistic pieces yours have a lot of "soul" to them. I think this one is my favourite as it has some "painterlyness" to it and sets up an interesting contrast with the realism.
