When I am having one of those days (nights, I should say) when the BLOCK BULLY OF ART comes and keeps repeating to my brain mean things like "YOU Will NEVER BE AN ARTIST! You call that art? I thought you spelt FART wrong because that's what your work looks like", I come look at your amazing pieces and inspiration comes with an army to throw away that meanie, BLOCK THE BULLY, and I start again with confidence and ease. Thanks for doing what you do and how you do what you do. Keep up the amazing work.

Peace.

I'm just discovering this piece. 

Well done! Technique, depth, palette, and composition are all exceptional. I do enjoy seeing the "dynamics" of the birds/bats - does a great deal to aid the overall expectation of "fight or flight."

I love the shadowy shapes of the bats/birds in front of the light... really sets up the scene.

I am scared at seeing Gandalf, so tall... of course the rest are dwarves and a Hobbit, but it still surprised me somehow.
I really like this one, the colors in particular are fantastic and add a lot to it.

In my mind I envisioned the dwarves and Bilbo looking into Mirkwood forest and it be like entering a world of darkness and shadow. The lighting is wonderful. Its like I'm looking into my imagination from a different angle.
