Oil painting on canvas - 80x100 cm ( 31.5x40 inch )

Just like time eroding the tenderest stone
Memories have carved their way
Throughout my headbone,

I remember the wind blowing so cold
Biting your skin just like a blade
and I'm alright, you said
You said: for once I feel

I recall everything
The freeze tinting your cheeks with purple
Every mistake, every stumble
And each footstep you made
into the sand

I look at you
How long am I bound to stand?
Here, you seem so untrue
Desperately peaceful and quiet

Look for close-ups and details here.

I sincerely think yours are my FAVORITE oil paintings. You are one of my long-time favorite artists. I'm curious as to which brand of oil paints you use, if you stick to one brand? 
Also curious as to whether you have a youtube channel or patreon, instagram, tumblr, anything of the sort where I can see more of your work in action.

I love the motif of the stone fish in your paintings. It's just another string that ties in your art with your intentions behind your art.

I love the way you coil vines around the people in a lot of your paintings. It adds so much depth to the picture; as if to suggest the person has been there for a very long time, or that they're very close to the natural things around them... I love it!
