This is a departure from your usual style, but very lovely!

Thanks, Harley & Kim. Yes it is different, Kim. Probably closer to things I used to do in advertising. But there was a beautiful new moon out the other night and I've been itching to do a digital sketch, so I guess you could say the muse struck me.

Beautiful. Did you see the moon last night?

Love the recent posts, Vince. Beautiful moody night image, here! I'd love to see a series of these from you.

It looks like beautiful, but chilly winter night somewhere peaceful.Nice.

Yes, Ry, I did see the moon and sketched it. Funny thing is, the line:"Did you see the moon last night?" popped into my head while I was working it.

Thanks, Mac Daddy. I do plan on continuing with this. I'm always itching to paint sunsets and night skies, and now I finally can without pulling out the art supplies or choking from marker fumes.

Thank you, Dorota. It was a peaceful night, but not too chilly. This was inspired by our conversations on painting sunsets and more natural settings.

Looking at this image I feel as if I'm rolling along a tributary at dusk. The waves rubbing shoulders against the side of the gondola seem to sing softly with each gentle fold. "Vince!" They cry, "Vince!"

Eric- that was so beautiful!!!

Vince M. said...

You're so good, Eric... VERY creative. I miss you very much at work, it's a VERY boring place without you. I hope you're having fun with little Calvin. Saw the photos, he's adorable.

Very nice Vince, I really like it. I dont know why, but when i see a moon like that, i get all hopeful and dreamy. Its fun when you see someone's art and it transports you someplace.. nice.

Thanks, Chantel & Eric. I've been having a little fun digitally. I'm really enjoying my new wacom tablet and the simplicity it affords. I Hope to dig in deeper as I learn more.
