    Incredible work George. LOVE the detail! How long does something like this take you to do?

  • It was done in 1984 and if memory serves I believe it was about three eight hour days. This is an abbreviated version as I had to crop the print to scan and upload it.

    This is gorgeous. Very magical. I am amazed for I have only seen the writer in you. This is a very nice surprise to find that you have more than a writer’s talent.

  • Actually, I joined RB to upload and showcase my art, but somehow I just got more interested in writing. I don’t really have the means to upload sharp enough images to make prints to sell. I went to printers and Office Max etc. to see about having my work scanned and put to a disc and they want an arm and a leg to do it. I’d like to know how all the other artists here are doing it cost effectively.
    Thank you for your comment and compliment, Iris.
