I truly appreciate all the kind words! To say the pictures never seem to do it justice really does apply. The photos just never seem to capture the true depth of the piece. I have had this painting hanging on the wall of my office since 2010 and it took a lot of convincing on my significant others part to lead me into finally snapping a photo and posting it up. The story behind it is a pretty intense story and involves a very near death experience for myself. When I decided to paint this i laid the first stroke of paint down from a hospital bed in my living room 8 days after I was involved in a 120mph street bike accident. I had been injured pretty severely and had been bed ridden for weeks during the process but when inspiration hits, you prop yourself up at the edge of that hospital bed in your living room and use the one partially functioning arm you have available and dammit you start laying some paint down lol. I was in the accident July 23rd of 2010 and began painting 8 days after that. I had broken my left wrist sustained a compound fracture of my left humorous bone which needed two plates and 6 screws 4 broken ribs on my left side 2 on my right a punctured lung a broken nose a hairline fracture to my left thigh bone a broken ankle. A lot of pain went into this painting but not nearly as much as the pride that was involved. At the time I had just returned home from a tour in Afghanistan and after receiving injuries due to a roadside bomb that ultimately led to brain damage and had caused me to go into several grand maul seizures I waited the three months after the seizures to drive again and used the opportunity to buy a bike: and there I sat, in pain and to proud to admit something like an accident was going to keep me from doing what i enjoyed doing. So for the most part that's a quick look intobthe story behind the painting. If you made it this far reward yourself tonight I tend to be very long winded and descriptive at times. Thank you for your interest in my art it is truly appreciated.
You're very talented :)
