    Wax eyes and a Greek urn.

    I havenít posted for a long time. I used to post as Ďhypotaxisí but that login seems to have gone AWOL. I got quite nasty arthritis in my hands and had to stop painting, but fortunately I have been rescued by a great naturopath and now my hands are back at 90% functioning again. So this is my first painting for quite a while.

    As always comments and constructive criticism are welcome.

    Beautiful design and I love the colors. Very tasty texture too. Reminiscent of Tiffany glass. Do you design stained glass? Would be really cool to see the light coming through it.

    Thanks Mr Dakey! No, I havenít ventured into stained glass, but Tiffany glass is beautiful. It has a wonderful nostalgia about it. Until my hands became painful I had gone back to using paint and paper. A scan of one is below. Iíll work with ArtRage for a while, and the see where I go :-)

    Ah! I do like the watercolor! Hope the hands get more easy on you. Keep painting whichever is the line of least resistance for ya. Jean Renoir suffered such a problem, yet he had brushes strapped to his hands by his nephews or sons or whoever would do it for him. I think if the love of it's there one can find a way. Digital seems the most promising with accessibility features and so forth.

    Looking forward to see lots more. You're clearly gifted.
