This is my illustration for Illustration Friday's theme "Afterwards". This is the sick mind of an artist although I would say this is still rated "G". This is my first finished painting since I completed my pumpkin project 5 days ago. If you missed it, I put together a slideshow to your right. I learned that it pays off to have some kind of project or firm painting schedule to keep you going. Five days without painting went by so quickly. It is so easy to get distracted with other things!
