I am absolutely thrilled with this piece, I am at the finish line. Now that this piece is almost complete I will now live with it for a bit, and find the areas that will be needing a little detail and glazing. I hope to have this accomplished by next week. It will be going into the gallery for sale. Makes me a little sad to put a price tag on this painting, I know it will find a good home.
