I love the rich shadings & textures that you are able to get. You achieve a photo realistic quality, but you take it beyond that point finding aspects in your subject that a photograph cannot. This piece is one of your best posted examples. I really like it! You are a truly extraordinarily gifted artist. You alluded in your post for young artists (another excellent piece, by the way. I hope that plenty of young artists are able to benefit by it. I think you could do well writing occasional short pieces like that that could benefit young or just budding artists of any age with your know how & experience) to working around surgery rooms. Your regular job is in the medical field?
