I've been busy working on the man in the mask. He's about to get - FLAME-KISSED! After all, if he's going to hang out with the Lady in the Dragon Mask, he's bound to end up in the fire. ha. So yes, he will have flames running up and around his mask and in the background. It's a nice tie-in to the previous Mask painting. Here he is pre-flames:

Here he is done. He danced a little too close to the dragon, perhaps. Here is "Flame-kissed":

I'm kind of digging this whole masked theme. One more to do, I think. It's been going around in my head for awhile - actually, long before I started the Dragon-mask Lady. Kind of more of the unmasked variety - which I might add can be scarier than the masks we wear. Revealing, even. Do you dare to look under the mask?

I finished the horse picture. Love the lost edges and sense of movement:

It's delivered and on the wall. She likes it. That always feels good to know you've pleased the person you painted for. It was a really different style for me. I enjoyed it.

Now it's on to the next painting. I'm doing a companion piece to the "Lady in a Dragon Mask". This one will be a man in a complementary mask. He's already taking on a personality. When he's done, I'm entering both of them into an art show coming up in San Francisco. It's all very exciting! I'll post the pair together as soon as I finish Mask 2.
