thank you so much for your kind words hayden. I'm still very proud of this piece, it took the longest time, but it was so special working on it. It sold last year during an artshow. Even though I was happy it went with somebody who obviously loved it as much as I do, I was still kinda sad at the same time :lmao: I'm glad I gstill have a good photograph of it :D

thank you so much messi, i too loved these colours. Lot of those markers have dried out since, but I often remember the atmosphere they created, in me, working with them. It is the piece I'm still the most proud of. Took the longest time, but it wa awesome. The piece sold last year during the artshow in Ottawa. I was happy, and kind of sad at the same time. But I'm glad it's with somebody who liked it so much too :D
