Oil on linen canvas, 2009
24 x 35 cm

I was virtually listening only one song while painting this.
Song was Tenacious D´s Wonderboy.

Well he surely is the wonderboy for me. :D

Thank you Rob!
I have now been without a smokes for about two weeks now. I feel really good about it and I do plan to continue as a non-smoker.
Sure i did ruin a few paintings because i could not consentrate, but in generally its been much easier than i thought it would be. :D
Thanks for asking and congrats for you to being not smoking that long.

Thats a good point Rob, its a real time waster on both ends. Hopefully i live a bit longer and paint that "good one" someday. :D
