I've been putting off uploading this painting for a long time now because I didn't think the camera could do it justice compared to the experience of standing in front of it, surrounded by a dark murky wood frame. The arrival of this contest seemed like a perfect time to upload and submit this piece.
I want to dedicate this to my long-time friends and art mentors. I've come this far because of you and I will continue going farther because of all you've taught me.
Best of luck to the other contestants!
