I had an experience that made me feel like a failure and in retrospect, I was not. It did inspire me to do this picture. While I only wish I looked like this, it is representational of me in some ways. The small shield on the baldric is my Arms in the SCA and the precarious balance is to show how off balance I felt at the time. "Baron's Folly" was about 15 x 20 on Canson paper (wish it had been the board). Done in Acrylics and watercolor colored pencil. Inspired by the works of Michael Parkes.
