The artists Michael Parkes does amazing surrealistic works that have inspired me for years. I have done a couple pictures that were heavily influenced by his work. "Baron's Folly" was one of my first and can be found elsewhere on this weble (I think). This new picture is the latest attempt by me to do something similar to his work. Also, it screams for a story...anyone want to write it? "When the Rose Bleeds", 10 x 12, Acrylic and watercolor colored pencil on Canson board. Original and prints for sale. Picture 29.
