The last brushstrokes of a setting sun

Well, I finished the painting today. It isn’t fantastic, but it is definitely good enough that I am pleased with it overall. I was going to wait till everything had dried before taking and posting another picture, but cereal4killers and so_herewego just posted some artwork and I didn’t want to feel left out.

So without further ado:

The color of the water hyacinth blossoms didn’t capture quite right in this photo because the paint is fairly thick and is still kind of wet. But overall, that’s about how it really looks.

    that’s good work, dude. I admire not only your skill as a painter but also your motivation to do something creative instead of just shitting around playing computer games and watching movies.

    …not that I’ve ever spent a whole summer doing that. I’m just saying.

    Again I would like to step out from the crowd and tell you how much your painting sucks. I think you should actually GET a day job and stop dabbling in that mess. You make me sad and disappointed. May you rot.

    La la la. Good job, fatty. I gave it a GOLD STAR!!!
