Two media, one subject.

The piece on the left, "Suddenly Last April", is an acrylic on canvas painting. It's small, 8 by 6 inches. On the right is "April", a mixed media and digital piece, 7.5 by 6.5.
"Suddenly..." is going to an auction for an independent film company, raising money for a project about the "therapeutic process of Art Therapy as a healing and life enhancing practice", according to their brief.
"April" is another exploration of the "Neo-Retro" style I have been developing over the past couple of years. It has evolved from a kind of brutish and primitive look to something more, if I may say it, elegant and refined. Examples of its evolution can be found at this link.
Anyway, I thought it would be an interesting juxtaposition to show the different styles. Interesting for an easy Saturday morning, anyway.
