More painting

Bryan and I spent the night again painting. We are getting a lot done. Tonight I finished up one of my brother in law Van. It has become one of my favorites. I'm amazed at how much the paintings are reflecting my views/feelings about each person. Thats one of the tricky things about creating art, you really can't lie. You can only be totally honest. If you try anything in between, its a failure. I can't plan out artwork - like try to make up some meaning for what I'm doing before I do it. I truly just have to go with gut feelings. I've tried to really plan and think about things, but when I'm untrue, or try to guide it too much, the work just isn't successful. My only thoughts going into this series has been that I wanted to do alternate halos.

P.S. I have to take the pictures at an angle so the flash doesn't wash out the painting too much. These are not great photos - I know that, but they give you the idea.

This is by far the best painting I have seen you do. All of them are great, but this is exceptional
