If you're wondering what the girl in this painting is thinking, then I did a good job! She is indeed, conflicted.

This was a piece I did based on a short story written by Leena Likitalo from Finland. Leena's Facebook
She is a wonderfully fun and sweet woman that I had the pleasure of working with for the L. Ron Hubbard's Writers and Illustrators of the Future Contest. We were both finalists, her a writer, and me an illustrator. The next task was for me to illustrate the book cover for her winning story, and this is it. Twelve writers' stories and twelve artists are featured in this latest anthology: Writers of the Future Volume 30 on Amazon

I went on to win the Golden Brush award with this piece, and I am eager to live up to the honor I've been given. 

And here are the three paintings that I submitted to become a finalist in the contest. These are all personal paintings.

Wicked new cover art! This is the sequel to Faces in the Fire which I also painted the cover for about a year ago. Donnita L. Rogers is writing the books and the dragon eye was her idea for the cover. What a great idea--it really paid off I think.
