...but who could resist
when given a kiss
by the infamous Damien Thorn

Now on Facebook: [link]

Signed prints are avail upon request - must have paypal & I'll make you etsy listing.

apologize for the ridiculousness and unfortunate necessity of the watermarking frenzy but I've modified the image in 2012 and wanted people to be able to enjoy a closer look without the DA watermark (which I wish I could position and modify opacity on). prints don't have watermarks though :)

There was more to the rhyme, but it was superfluous. This is a combo painting and photo manip. The characters are mine, but a lot of photos were added to the background & foreground during the painting process. I worked on this in photoshop and then painter for brushstrokes. I must have spent 40-60 hours on this, the bench alone took me 3-4. I never thought anything could be more difficult to paint than striped stockings, and I was wrong.

my personal stock used:

Why a summer/spring painting in winter? Because first love reminds me of the summer & early fall. It's where it'll always be held for me.
