Really wonderful piece, Shelly. You win :)

I love it when people paint on odd shaped canvases.

Great stuff

Mike Dutton said...

I think I gushed plenty enough on the original post where this piece is hanging, but I just wanted to say again how much I loved your piece. I hope it will become available as a print or fan someday because I'm sure you'll have plenty of customers waiting to purchase it.

Beautiful work, Shelly.

Hernando Silva said...

This painting, does it represent the life of someone whe know or some event, like the invasion of Iraq by the USA, or is just a waste of time?

Marcos Mateu said...

This is a kick ass painting Shelly.

Ben Foster said...

Shelly--

I've been consistently stunned by your work in this dome, but this piece left me with my jaw disclocated on the floor somewhere near my computer.... Stunning.

I'll echo Jason and others in saying that, if you can make an actual fan out of this, I'll be the first one to buy it. (prints would be nice too. ;) )

UrbanBarbarian said...

Too cool! Echoes of Dean Cornwell! So nice!
