This was done as a reaction to another artist's comment on my lack of tact. (I often say outloud what others keep to themselves)
This was done in just a couple of minutes, using Glitter Tube, Airbrush, and oil brush. I was so surprised at what a wonderful texture you can get using glitter (My first time)

Excellent texture on the rocks. This is an interesting image that leaves it wide open for interpretation. Made me think of a battle field and the blood that is spilled over land and power. Well done LSB!:D

Gorgeous! Love it!!

As for your lack of tact and critique you can use it any time with me! I am learning AR and want to create beautiful art as yours. One little statement from you helps me grow with both! You have helped me love AR and oil paints in AR already!!

Interesting textures indeed, Skylar! Glitter offers some surprising effects. Sometimes works great for trees/foliage.

As for a lack of tact (have no idea of the context to which you are referring), sometimes that "lack of tact" helps one stay "intact." :cool:

Thanks everybody! I was going to explain the origin of this image a bit more, but now I think the very ambiguity lends itself to more interpretation by others. All sorts of good ideas coming in!

Amanda, Caesar - Thanks for the comments. This is one of those exercises where less is more. A minimal image - open to interpretation.
