I have let the Cowboy at the Cross portrait sit repeatedly so as to spot any problem areas that need touching up. Overall it is a pleasant piece that I must be proud of. All of my pieces are stepping stones to something better. It is a learning process.
I would be so happy for some constructive criticism on this piece.
Then I was inspired to do a moon-landscape. I wondered what the dark-side of the moon looks like. I considered how the sky from any object without an atmosphere might look. And I was led to create this piece- a rather dramatic burning.
This work came entirely from the heart. No reference photographs and very abstract, random pen-strokes. I let the heart take my hand and go with it where it willed. And the results were astonishing. This is probably as abstract as I'll ever go, though I truly love illusions. I also took the liberty to hide many images in this piece. I will not divulge the images hidden or their location. But most of the images can already be found in the night sky.
Completion pictures will be posted soon. I aim to make prints of this work. And hope to do more astronomy pictures, as well as some astrology works.
