My mind has always been drawn to creation... an aspect I fought hard to avoid in my youth due to the mindset of the "common" world: struggle and failure is your only option (unless you're known already). I have no intention to become famous or wealthy and hold no illusions in art. My skills were only ever mediocre (I would say) and grew greatly due to the ambition of my last piece about marriage equality. This scene was spawned purely from a dream, I woke up and just started working.

I had not painted in roughly 10 years... through the military, college, marriage and life I worked on it when I could and my passion for creation was rekindled. The subject matter was not on my mind at the time... the only connection to the image I can make is that I secretly always wanted to paint something epic for the mind because this was always what mine was drawn to. I worked directly, paint to image, no practice pieces, drew sections as I painted others... and saw my confidence, skill, and knowledge increase exponentially. I hope to, and will, continue.

During the time (6 years) I was able to pick away at this I had, and sketched, plenty more that I am already flushing out... not having any relation to the subject, but (hopefully) as detailed and mind-catching. Due to life I am a stay at home dad, my wife works and has supported me in this... we save when we can (like most it is not much or often)... some level of income would be extremely beneficial for my family and continuing (no different than anyone else I guess). 

I would TRULY appreciate anything, grateful for something as little as your interest...
