I started out with the face and then it grew from there. I think it really turned out awesome. It might just be my new favorite! Probably because it's new.
I layered and layered a lot on this. I wanted it too look busy/messy, and it does. The lines, shades, colors, and splatters all work together in my opinion. Painting for me, really has a type of freedom to it....no harsh lines, nothing overly detailed (unless you want it to be). I like sloppy pieces.....I'll definitely venture out on this concept more.

This is one of two Buddha acrylic paintings I have done. There's something about a Tibetan Buddha face that seems so tranquil and at peace. I liked the sloppyness of this one.... like the paint was dripping.
This canvas has been painted probably about five times with random stuff......the end result being another Buddha. I had seen an old statue on TV that looked like the original outside paint was flaking off revealing the original color underneath, and that gave me the inspiration to paint this one. It's not the best, but I think it has it's own unique look to it.
Of course eveyone know's who this is.......Bob has been one of my favorites that I have ever drawn up! I was in the zone when I started this one, and he took me literally about an hour and a half to do. I know that sounds crazy...(it sounds crazy to me too, but I speak the truth!) People have tried everything from bribery to stealing it from me, but it's mine, and I don't think I can ever part with this one.
