New Work!

So this is my latest piece and I REALLY like it! Somewhere along the line I got really fascinated with the story of Don Quixote... maybe it was when I had to perform a scene from Man of La Mancha in college. Have I mentioned I used to do musical theater?

Anyway, this is my little inspirational take on his story. Granted, its a pretty loose interpretation, I think, but still... I am happy with it. I know artists have taken inspiration from books for centuries, but as much as I love reading one would think I would do it more often. Subconsciously I know novels influence my work and thought all the time, but maybe considering their stories more intentionally would lead to some cool things... What do you think? What stories haven't been done that you think would make a cool painting? Hmmm... Let's see what happens!
