I usually paint the object first, and its reflection afterward, but for some reason I did it differently this time... when I paint, I try not to think too much...

Thanks. I appreciate the compliment, "... it looks like a photo," but honestly... if you look at it up close... it's just blobs of color. Really... I don't try to blend everything to make it look photographic... I'd rather take a white-hot poker up the asshole than paint duck-stamp-art with a four-hair brush.
That it all seems to come together is what's cool for me.
Oh, yeah... the old man was a bird-hunter, which translates to bobwhites where I grew up. I have four sisters... so you know he was high-fivin' when a little bob popped out. Naming me BobWhite was his crowning glory in life. That's why the "BobWhite" thing.
