New finished painting (Her Little Sidekick)

Hey everyone, :)

Here is my latest finished painting titled "Her Little sidekick".

I am very happy with the way it turned out. I had a lot of fun working on this painting and I especially loved working with this color scheme.

The story behind this work is that she is a circus performer who is tired and stressed from a long day of work and is being cheered up and entertained by her little sidekick (a Capuchin monkey) that is offering her a snack.

This image was painted using Photoshop and Painter.

Here are a few close-ups.

Another work-in-progress (Forbidden Love)

Here is yet another work-in-progress (titled "Forbidden Love") that I thought I would post here. I had started it as an entry to an art contest but couldn't find the time to finish it by the deadline. Aside from my busy work schedule I hope to find some time in the near future to finish it. There is still quite a bit of work needed to be done on this. I want to push myself farther with this one as I try to do with every new painting.

The story behind this work is dear to my heart and relates to a big issue that the world faces today. They are a young couple who ran away together because their cultures and families won't accept them as a couple. They are both from different countries and religious backgrounds though their countries are right next to each other their families hate each other and will never let them be together.

I wanted to capture a moment with them in a state of fear and bliss savoring every last moment that they have together before or if they ever are found.
