Well, this is just love gone mad. Heh, not really . . . I did a painting for my wife, about 10 years ago, and she donated it to the hospital she worked at before we moved out to Vancouver. She casually joked I had to make another one for her someday, and this Valentine's, I sprung it on her. Sadly, my poor photography skills do little justice to the rich color, since the flash washed out some of the color, and I tried to get as much of it back with Photoshop as I could without losing contrast, but it still kinda sucks. I'll post a better one later on. This is my fifth attempt at wildlife painting . . . needless to say, I'm not about to make Robert Bateman nervous anytime soon . . . hehehe.
