A Million Escapes

A Million Escapes

Into a storm
Crashing through
Welcoming waves
Heading for my Islands
Almost every evening
Attempting to sleep

There is a painting hiding within these lines, a storm waiting to be sail through.

Outside the Walls (Initial Sketch)

Outside the Walls (Initial Sketch)
This was the original doodle that lead to the painting of the same title I posted here last week. I guess this was the original idea. I was just looking back. The idea of walls feels so much stronger without the opening shown in the final painting.
I must say I do like the figures in the painting more though.

Second Week With "R"

Second Week With “R”
Last week he was in the same pose. I did a painting with watercolors. Today I painted with acrylics. I painted less of him, concentrating on his portrait.
