New 6x6 painting for the New 17, more ethereal and symbolic piece that's open to interpretation, not everything should be explained by the artist, some things should be left to the viewer to decide.

"Eye study" small daily oil painting on paper

 Been busy lately working on corporate illustrations for an Ad campaign and just got back from a trip to Europe but slowly moving back into painting mode and looking to expand some ideas on the canvas.
