Here we go, my first blog post... better late than never.

I was extremely pleased and honored that my painting "Aries" received quite a few awards this year. It won 1st place in the animal category of the "Art Renewal Center 2014-2015  salon", 3rd place in the annual "RayMar Competition", and 3rd place in the "Artist's Magazine Annual Competition"

"Aries" was a commission for my close friend Seth, and I'm happy it found such a loving home. 

This post will cover the creation of "Aries" from the first compositional studies, to the finished piece.
