This is taken from a drawing by Leonardo DaVinci. I did this for my dear friend Damian May, whose world revolves in B&W and is a perfectionist, I hope he likes this most of anyone. I was inspired by his very detailed artwork, and i had the help of the Rolling Stones…their tunes moved me and helped me not to give in even though my subject was quite a struggle!

I find my sustenance in life with art, when I paint a great calm enters my mind and all worries leave me, it is as if I enter a different world through art.
