Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.
~ W.B. Yeats (excerpt from the Second Coming)
More spring cleaning! I found this tucked away in a pile of stuff. I guess I started it... yeesh, around last September. I couldn't remember why I abandoned it mid-painting, so I figured I'd put a couple more hours into it this afternoon and finish it up. The world could use some more baboons, anyway. ;]

Ever the wide world over, lass,
Ever the trail held true,
Over the world and under the world,
And back at the last to you.
Another product of some spring cleaning--I actually started painting this back in December, I think, and have been slowly adding bits of paint to it when I have the time. Some parts I like, a few things I wish I could have done differently...but in the end its nice not to half have finished paintings cluttering up my workspace. :]

I've been working on a large comic project that's kept me more-than-busy the last few months, though I have managed to do a couple of paintings on the side. During some spring hard-drive cleaning, I found a few and figured I'd post some.
I painted this as a gift for my brother's birthday a week ago. He happens to enjoy music as well as a good sci-fi reference or two, so it worked out well. ;]
