Thanks a lot Pariano - And thanks for all your help!

Yesterday was a lot of fun. It left me wondering why it had taken me so long to put down my pen tablet and pick up some oil paints.
Today... not so much. I had a lot more trouble with my dog...

After all the trouble I had getting started, I was worried I might not take to this whole oil painting thing. I finally was able to spend about an hour today just painting, thank goodness....

I'm continuing to revisit some old art - this one for Fantasy Flight Games, 2005 or 2006. I've spruced it up for the ol' portfolio.

I was very close to calling this one finished...
