Never Quit Searching *stolen* by 

I finally got to paint this from my digital manipulation, "Don’t Give Up Searching ": I’m so pleased with the result. I used a few different textures and oil paint and made the eye brown rather then blue so that the image was unified in pallet to suit a college project so that I could paint this particular piece without abandoning duty.
In 2008 this painting was STOLEN.
It was being displayed in Bentley Pines Restaurant with a group of other art from fellow students. toward the end of the year the restaurant went though refurbishments and stored the works in a disabled toilets :/ we were asked to collect the work but this painting had already gone before it could be collected. Ive contacted all the people in charge and been forwarded around like a telstra customer on hold and still haven’t gotten it back. :(

    Incredible. You’ve created a real sense of 3D. The texture and tonal shading is brilliant. I love the strength of the painting in contrast with the digital version. And I think the brown eye actually works better.
