Well, today I say goodbye to my twenties and hello to 30. I thought it'd be fun to do a illustration of something very old. Well, me being me, it had to be a dragon. So here's my latest, an old, old dragon, who I named Methuselah. Methuselah is mentioned in the Bible as the grandfather of Noah. Having lived to 969 years old, his name is synonymous with anything of old age.

It seems somehow serendipitous that on my 100th blog post, I should display my recent foray back into more traditional media (or analog media, for the nerds in the audience). Here's an oil portrait I did recently (after have not painted in oil for about 4 years). It was done in three hours.
Do I have a lot of work ahead of me? Of course. That's why artists do what they do for their entire lives. Am I satisfied with this painting? Yes and no. Yes, because I wasn't sure how much I've lost over the years of not painting in oil. I'm pleased to say I didn't lose too much and I'm almost ready to say that I'm exactly where I left off. And at the same time, I know things can be better.
Well, I've got the rest of my life to learn more and produce better work. Not nearly enough time.
