Unsolicited Wizardry



Sat down and just started painting.  Seemed silly to just leave everything just sitting in a folder on my desktop.  I was just trying some stuff out while looking at a photo of sleeping beauty's castle.  It took off from there.  It was virtually impossible for me to just leave them as straight environment paintings.  I must have a disease or something that prevents me from painting anything without trying to be funny or ironic.  You have no idea how hard I fought myself NOT to paint a wizard, or a monster, or a robot into that last piece.  I put one anyway...win?

The last one... once I saw that scene.
I was not too far from Salisbury on the summer solstice, but he was dressed in dark green.
True!
