#160: "Raw"

Over time, I have browsed through thousands of photos in hopes of painting something true to life. This is one such photograph; Atif Saeed had a near-death experience in order to capture the raw and primal beauty of wild. I am honored that Mr. Saeed permitted the use of his photo as a reference. 

This painting marks the beginning of my career as a full-time artist. It is sort of a life changing event that as of April 13, 2015 I am taking a break from my career in IT to spend more time with art and family.
