Sold via my shop at Both paintings have gone to live in Baltimore.
Wrathful Athena with Manjushri Blade
Painted over an older painting I no longer liked, this is a symbolic piece depicting a Buddhist art influenced Wrathful Athena bearing Manjushri's blade.
I have transferred everything that I have internet-published of my fictional work BALGAIR (a comical ghost story set in northern England) that was on this site to I will be FINALLY posting the final chapters there.
I feel the need to clear the decks around here.

PS. I've been on DA for 9 years and counting now - AND STILL NO DAILY DEVIATION NOD FROM ANYONE. Should I bother to contact a moderator of a particular group to see if they will give me a little pat on the head?…
And this is the response I got:

(id removed for the sake of their privacy) said the following:

I took a look at your gallery and I think you're doing a great job. It's not quite the DD skill level yet, but you are very close and I expect that with a bit of development, you'll definitely get to be featured eventually.
Have a good weekend."

And this was my response to 'them':

"I honestly do not know what to say to that after some of the DDs I've seen here already.
Ah well.
Consider my work a lost cause and drop me off your radar.

I'm not going to bother with the folks who run this site.  I've seen some of the work that gets the DD nod and can only wonder what the criteria is, so I'm washing my hands of the whole endeavor and just doing what I want to do.
I've been a deviant for 7 years now by the way.

Artomatic Takes Flight - National Airport, Washington, DC.

If you happen to be going through National Airport, visit the Artomatic Takes Flight show. I have a painting on view there: Hermes and the Zephyr.
