A new year with a bang.

First of all, a couple of 5x7 commissions in progress.

And the first major piece for the year.
16x48, acrylic on board. Dandelion Mountains.
Due to the odd weather on the east coast, we've been slammed with unseasonal temperatures- it actually got into the 70s last week. Dandelions and pansies aren't even thinking about dying.
Dandelions have always been dear to me- pretty, prolific, invasive, useful. Just like people. Dandelion fluff, to me, represents the ease with which we are transplanted across the city or even country. And the mountains... well, if you've ever lived in the blue mountains of Appalachia, you'll know what I'm talking about. Think of this as a nostalgia piece, I guess.

Oh, and the pictures are crap. The background is iridescent, with lacy overlay.
