Something from my moleskine.

I once had a dream that I was watched over by a guardian angel. I dreamt of this angel
Many times and in each dream the angel would guide me through or around myriad dangers that presented themselves to me in my life.
Only, as time wore on 
I began to realize that the angel was dulling the sharp experiences of my existence. Muting the range of my being and diminishing my potential to grow stronger through the trials of my life.
In confronting the angel about this I found to my surprise that it was not an angel at all...

Two exercises that I did in oil. I did black and white studies of random photographs that I found in some magazine. I don't know who the photographers or the models were or I would credit them. These were and are for my own educational purposes to see if I could manage the oils...at least in monochrome.

Oh look...I found my brush pen!

As I was waiting for some feedback today and laid up with a UFC related back injury(it wasn't UFC I hurt it getting into the car) I found this guy...he's part of the Personal Demons sketchbook series. I think I must have imprinted Darkness from Legend as my patriarchal archetype.
