Favorite - Serra Angel
This image is my favorite because of the amount of detail and the complimentary colors. I also like how it is very easy to look at because the image is not too busy and overflowing with content. Greg Staples is one of my favorite artists, and I believe that this piece shows why. He has a good sense of design and a great deal of talent. His biography also shows that he is determined and self-motivated, both qualities that I admire. Also, the lighting that he was able to incorporate into the image does a good job of moving attention to the angel, the main subject of the painting, instead of the background.
