Ok...here it is. The one that went into the shower with me ....and then some. As you see, we've revamped our background due to the movie about Georgia....most obviously!
But, I am really happy with the end result and am inspired to attempt some more.
And I think that's the point with your journey as an Artist. Constant reinvention. I was having this conversation with 'Gallery Guy' and wondering if I was throwing a 'wrench into the works' by changing the backgrounds, especially as I'm starting to be recognized for the detailed ones I've been doing. He very succinctly pointed out as an Artist, it was your prerogative to change it up. How many Artists have been stuck painting a certain style over and over, ad infinitum, because their public wants the same thing/style? Apparently Pollock went bonkers doing the splat theme. All I can say is that it's exciting to be going this way....... NEXT!!
