Hey all. Welcome to my little space to share my art. Since creating is one of my ways to cope with my illness, I thought I’d post here to discuss it with like-minded people. My favourite media are watercolours and oils, though I also create digital art as well. I typically make art featuring cartoon animals as vessels to tell stories. I like to render my paintings with a lot of semi-realistic detail, and I take a lot of inspiration from the Renaissance, Baroque, and Romantic periods. As of writing this, I will be enrolling at a local community college to continue my studies in the arts. My hope is that I can get my work into galleries and tell my stories to the world. I hope you all enjoy what I post here.
The first painting I want to share is called Remorse, and it is the first in my series called Goats. In this series I will explore the subject of cartoon goats in classical settings. Each goat will have their own stiry to tell in a short sentence. This painting is oil on canvas panel. As a side note, it was also accepted into a regional competition, which will be my first ever exhibited work.
The old goatman feels remorse for all he has done and all he could have done.
