Holy shit. I was about to just breeze over this, then I realized that it wasn't a photo.
Seriously if I didn't take the time to look at the background I would have considered this a photo

This is insane. FANTASTIC. I'm just imagining you thinking, "Gee, what's the most difficult thing I could possibly paint? I know! Saran wrap over shiny stuff!"

Incredible art! I love your choice of objects and the composition in your still life paintings. Huge fan of your figure and city scapes too. Can you recommend any books out websites? Look forward to seeing more of your fantastic work

This is a very interesting and striking image... beautifully rendered as always! :clap: Looking at your paintings is like a lesson each time I see a new one. They stress the importance of the juxtaposition of light and dark to create illumination!
