Hey everybody... I just got back home from a week in Sinai, Egypt... It's an amazing place and has been a great vacation from a busy summer, and I now feel very ready to go back to school... in 19 days I'll be heading back to Sarasota, and I have so much to do before that... I have a lot of work in progress that I hope to get done before school starts... meanwhile, this is a piece I did last week as birthday gift for friends of my parents ... I'm quite happy with it, although I now think I could accent the shadows some more, and in general work on defining the light some more... but, this is just another step in the ladder I guess... I'll be posting some more work really soon.. I hope... thanks!
