Piece description from the artist
The inspiration for this piece came from a local statue here in Dallas. This piece also began life with my digital pen, was printed on canvas, and was highlighted with acrylic paint for special effects. Even with the drama and motion of this piece, the colors are very subdued and feel very calming to me. I love the blue/brown color combination. I am very pleased with the outcome of this piece and am always glad to see the attention it receives.
