Just a Taste?

8x10 acrylic on canvas

"Just a taste?" he asks with smoldering, dark orbs that draw you closer. Even though you know exactly what fate awaits you in his embrace, how can you possibly resist? Calming, lush colors surround him, like cool grass and a smooth stream on a hot summer's day, yet it is not water he thirsts for as he licks his dry lips.

This painting was inspired by not only the dangerously tempted Jasper from the Twilight series, but also the stereotypical James Dean, bad boy vampire who hungrily pursues the damsel in distress and renders her powerless by his hypnotic eyes.

Yes, I think most of us have met one or two...


  1. His eyes are very nice; I especially like how you added the shadows beneath them. It really gives his eyes depth.

  2. Great Job!! I didn't know you were a painter?!
    I think you captured it perfect! Keep Painting!

  3. Thanks guys!

    Actually, Caleen...I didn't either. LOL! o_0
