Id appreciate if you commented on it, cuz it took me an awful lot of time, the shading was impossible :D

This is an an example of great tonal quality and dynamic range. Great work.

Thank you very much. It was a pleasure to ensure the image was represented properly. The atmospherics that day were perfect for the range captured.

You are most welcome. I meant to also mention the other angels in the series too. they are a great study. I may direct young artists to them for practice drawing.

Most appreciated! You mentioned that you, too, were in Seattle. We're new to the city and have a new studio space in Pioneer Square. We've moved up here from Austin, TX, and before that, Norfolk, VA. We're liking it here so far - looking forward to the warmer weather, though! LOL.

Please let me know how your young artists appreciate the angels.

Don't hold your breath for warm weather. Hope is eternal. We have had two summers in a row which sucked big time. Last one was the worse i had seen. Way colder, less sun. There would bee 4 days at 90, then drop to 40 and rain for days or cloudy.

When it does get sunny, it is glorious here. There is some really great hiking, canoeing, and white water rafter to be done. I never liked the rock climbing around here, and much preferred Joshua Tree and Yosemite.

In the summer, Lake Crescent is a nice little trip over to the Olympic peninsula. There is a place to rent canoes. There are tons of outdoor things to do.

Pioneer Square was once THE happening place, then went downhill and got kind of dangerous at night. There is a bit of a revival going on. The art gallery scene can be fun if you do it with cool people. I hate the art snobbery game.

Austin is about the only livable place In Texas for people like me. I worked in a shipyard in Norfolk and sailed in and out of there some with Exxon Shipping Co, on their tankers (Exxon Valdez fame).

Welcome to Seattle.

Thanks for the synopsis of the area!
We'll be doing what we can to steer clear of the "art snobbery" portion of the business, but art is our bread and butter, so we have to do some elbow rubbing to be noticed. It sucks, but bills don't get paid if we're obscure...

I'm not much into water activities at all. We like to hike and camp and have been to a couple of interesting places around here, but have yet to explore further. We'll see what spring/summer brings as far as not so sucky weather this coming year.

I miss Austin.

Good grief it's snowing yet again, in February. This is rare for us.

They are not all snobs of course, just some really grate on the nerves.

If you are going to be showing, I wish you the very best of potential customers.

Yeah - the snow was a strange event... :-/

It's been really nice lately, and I'm enjoying it. We'll be opening (hopefully) in the near future. We have plenty of clients on the outside, so were not dependent on retail sales at all.

I'm looking at doing some art community 'stuff' like life drawing sessions and the like. We'll see how that pans out.
