This piece is the first in a new mixed media series I'm working on. I generally don't have a specific outcome in mind when I start these pieces...for me, it's a very similar process to veil painting. It's meditative and involves lots and LOTS of layers that eventually reveal what needs to be seen. (on the left shows the first 2 layers of the finished piece.)
Part of the work that both Brian and I do is custom illustration as well as art instruction. Give us a shout if you'd like to collaborate!
