Describing Life's Journey and Experiences Through Art

Just got back from instructing at The Fantastic Workshop, and have a lot to post about that.. but wanted to also share my post on the Muddy Colors blog from a few days ago.
Describing Life's Journey and Experiences Through Art - A brief string of visual metaphors and expressive pictorial descriptions.

At The Fantastic Workshop, I did a presentation in which I read what's in that MC blog post, and showed a slide show behind me of the images that are in the MC blog post.  I feel like that was a really great way to present this as a whole.  But if you weren't there for that, I hope you enjoy the article!

I was commissioned to do this painting, and enjoyed building layers of texture (which are difficult to photograph, and as always, the painting is better to view in person. :)  )
