EDIT: Rephotographed the drawing. Still not perfect but closer to the original I think.

And thanks all so much for all your comments and kind words!

Hard to believe this is charcoal, just never seen this kind of detail done in that medium, and now I see why my G+ friend is so impressed, Ian Andrews sent me here, he follows your work & now so do I. Shared this one out to the above links as well as G+ manually. Amazing!!! That water looks so real, like a photography minimum.

Is there a reason you sign your name with all capitalization? I had heard that artist are supposed to sign art this way and was wondering if there is any truth to it. Amazing piece btw. Thanks -Ry

May I answer you before he does? Artists "are not supposed" to do anything. It's your choice how to sign it or IF you want to sign it. :)

True, However the majority of art gallaries (from what I'm told), will not accept your art if they see a signature that is not in cap's. They argue that it makes it look too manufactured like a print and not an original. I had never heard of this before and wanted to see if anyone else had heard of this. If you look at the artwork in art gallery magazines most all the signatures are in caps, only about 1 or 2 are otherwise. Interesting? I was thinking how come I had never heard of this? Wierd?
