LOVE this. The texture work in the background is great. A very soft touch that is really great. Nicely done!

Chrissie I'm confused.
Didital piece? Stock bacground?
I'm assuming you've built this from "clip art"?
If so, your'e a Mistro for sure!
This art piece has more "draw", (no pun intended) and creativness
than I've seen anywhere in a long time.
Your work is a sweet treasure I've
found! More! Yes! Bravo!

Hi Bill--

Let me explain (I know I didn't give much detail in my description, did I?)

I actually drew the figure as a pencil sketch, then scanned it in and re-drew it and colored it digitally. The background is an old photo of a ferris wheel (one of many photos provided for use by artists on deviantART) and has been manipulated to become more of an abstract background.

Thank you so much for your comment--I'm very pleased you like the piece. It was something of a *new* direction for me.

Chrissie, I've come back to this piece of art many times.
I've growen to love this.
There is so much about this that I feel awkward, in a good way.
Is this work available?

billspaintingmn said...

Chrissie, let me rephase this.
This is an art piece that I would
like to have.
If it's possible to purchase, at your convenience, I should want to
have this on my wall.
Or is there a gallery I can get this at?
Your art is cool and has an "air"
I want in my space.
I would frame it myself.
No hurry, as I'm sure your busy at
this time.
Hope to here from you when you can.
Hey, Merry Christmas!!

Hello Bill!

Such a compliment! I'm pleased that you like this one so much!

I have a large Epson printer which does a beautiful job of printing my digital pieces...perhaps you'd enjoy a print of this?

Send me an email at your convenience--altese@gmail.com--and we can discuss size, paper, price, mailing, etc. Okay?

Thanks! And Merry Christmas to you as well!
