Sea of Romance

I’d always had aspirations to do book cover art. What genre would I have chosen to concentrate on? Fantasy? Sci-fi? Pulp? How about Romance? I’d have fun either way, I think. Each bringing their own set of challenges. Well here’s a recent piece that tries to capture some of that sweeping romance and drama – of course this doesn’t include the man’s ripped shirt to reveal his manly chest, nor does it involve a young woman arched back so that we’re looking down her cleavage. No, as much fun as that sounds, I thought I’d be a little less revealing here. Maybe the next one will visit those more risque cliches.
