This is a digital piece that I finished last night.  He was inspired by some legends that speak of a horse that is something else in disguise... something much more sinister.  I'm not assigning a name to him because there are many variations and many names, but just know, that he is not what he seems - but you might have come to that conclusion simply by the eerie ambiance and those creepy eyes.

You can just call him Bob.  Cheesy

(You can right click "new tab" for the larger image)

And then this was my first mixed media piece.  The canvas was painted with oils on top of wax long ago and I just got around to finishing him recently by attaching the digitally painted mechanical bird, a stick from a tree in my front yard,  and hand made fabric flowers.  I want to call it something along the lines of: Why does the mechanical bird sing of... electric sheep... or something... I honestly haven't thought of anything clever.  I really have no idea.

btw I realize that trying to photograph art with a lens with a shallow depth of field is just stupid.  Sorry.  I should have just grabbed the point and shoot for these.

Ohhh! Bob is spooky! It's a great piece though.

I love the colors and textures in your mixed media piece. Very cool.

I love the mixed media piece! The colors are amazing and I think you photographed your work very well. I'd love to see it hanging on my walls!

Pretty mixed media piece, I really like how the 3D elements tie in with that gorgeous background!
