Sometimes a work of art can be a bit of a struggle – which is exactly what this one was. It was my first time tackling a snake portrait, and it was also my first time tackling a reptile at such an odd angle. Overall I think it turned out alright, but I wouldn’t say I’m terribly proud of this one. Perhaps it’s because I’ve been staring at it for too long for too many hours…

So why share it? Because it’s part of the artistic process. Instead of sharing all my masterpieces, I like to share all the artwork I’m working on in the studio. I think that every work of art I complete, the failures and successes,¬†all help me move¬†towards becoming a better artist. And I love sharing that process with everyone, where I can share how I learn and grow along the way.
