Brooding and a Second 2nd Place

After a few months hiatus from Every Day Original to catch up on a few things, I'm now back to my regular posting date of the 21st of the month. That means this new mermaid goes up for sale tomorrow morning at 10am EST. Be ready, they don't usually last long.

For your viewing pleasure, I also managed to record and compile a time-lapse video of the painting process of this small study.

There is more good news about my painting, 
Reaching Europa. It has received a second 2nd Place Award! This time in the Infected by Art annual competition, also claiming Gold in the Oil/Acrylic/Watercolor category. See all of the great winning artworks here.
