Believe it or not, I began this painting in June but just finished it. Also of note, this is very like the original sketch that I based the 3D piece 'Ring-Tailed Tooter' on. I just couldn't make it work and LOOK good 3D. A 12 by 16 inch acrylic painting, 'The Optimist' is always looking up so, at the very least, is not looking down into a rather prosaic digital device. More of that Original Jones Art originating in, what is fast becoming a cookie-cutter city, Austin, Texas.
