I love the obvious brush strokes. Makes a painting, a painting in my opinion. When the strokes are blended it's more about the image, than paint itself. FAV!!!

Stephen Colbrt"

My hero :) I like your illustration style, still chunky and painterly enough to pass for arty ;) but at the same time, very much loose and fun.
