This piece took a fair bit of time, involving layers, textures, erasing, smudging, highlighting, etc.

model – K
landscape/model/sky – my own photos

Sometimes we rush life, emotions, events…wanting things to take place over night, but if we just ‘wait’ while remaining true to ourselves, our spirit, the most glorious gifts will be revealed.

grunge textures were borrowed from this brilliant man

this piece is for the most amazing and beautiful woman on the planet and my best friend.

inspired by my favourite painter
