Very nice rendering of a four headed snakebird, aka: "The Water Turkey of Doom".

I always look forward to your posts. I appreciate them and I like everything you feature. Sorry that I'm not coming off as sarcastic or whatever, but I just wanted to communicate that. Thank you, Jen Graves.

@2 I saw it in person tonight and thought the exact same thing. One difference is that there is less background/scene setting/narrative in the paintings. The other artist showing there, Nealy Blau, a photographer, also had awesome work.
