Music added to website

Recently added a piece of music to enhance your viewing pleasure on my website. This has been something I've had in mind and I have wanted to do for years because of my love for great scores / soundtracks in film. Only by choice can you listen to the music by clicking SHOW MUSIC PLAYER in the bottom right corner of the website. BIG thanks to Andy Fumberger for he is the genius and creator of the piece music. so let me know what you all think ?? and enjoy

'The Road' commissioned painting

This painting I thought I would share after getting a lot of good feedback on it from close peers. I wasn't originally going to share due to the fact its not original piece but rather based from a film / book. I don't normally take on things like this but I was asked and I liked the film so much and had some time on my hands.
It was commissioned last year and based from the film
'The Road'
I tried to keep the background a little looser so it feels like its painted and not just a copy of the film image.
