Expected Visitor (Astrid 2014)

It still counts as a January tradition even if I don’t finish it until December. 🙂

After so many false starts, I gave up on Astrid 2014 for a while (and then got involved with a career change that kept me busy most of the year). When I came back, I felt inspired again and made this.


This is #10 in the series. You can see the first 9 paintings here.

Yeah, it’s almost a year late, but I don’t care. It feels good to be inspired again. 🙂

Enjoy some WIPs:

Sharp chunky brush strokes are mostly courtesy Photoshop’s “sharpen more” filter.

I’ll be starting Astrid 2015 in… well… now’s as good a time as any!
