Talk about luck! Such great style, and such wonderful subjects! As you may know, I'm a sucker for a historical painting, and even more so for depictions of legendary characters. He strikes me as an ancestor of my hero N.C. Wyeth, but with a bit of Arnold Böcklin and Goya thrown in.
They're very exciting to me, and make me want to dig out some old historical novels and read until my eyes hurt. I hope you enjoy them as much!
