In celebration of 100,000 words

I achieved 100,000 words on Book of Pain today, and, as  I may have mentioned, it's not even close to finishing, so to celebrate I reworked an earlier painting. 

   Eagle eyed GIMP users will see that the rigging is a GIMP stamp, but those same users will know what a pain in the bottom it is to paint straight lines using aforementioned package. 

   However the rest is all mine. I know the sea might be a little too light for the time of day but I'm going to leave this one alone. 

   Another day, another painting.

I wonder if I cold get the cat to sit for a painting. It wouldn't take more than three hours. I suppose if I promised her my head it might work. But then she's probably worked out a way of getting that for herself. She still avoiding me and bears her teeth in a particularly nasty way whenever we cross paths.


  1. Wow, I love the deep blue of the water contrasted by all the grays. Looks pretty perfect to me.

  2. Fantastic painting Roger, you are getting better and better!

  3. Thank you both. I enjoyed that one. Another tomorrow.
