Amazing! :notworthy:
Thanks for the post sixstringer, Martin sure is one hell of an artist. I stumbled across this piece from 2007, I can´t think of an artist within the genre that has evolved more than Mr. Wittfooth, stunning progress and a good reason to support his work. He is conceptually and technically amazing, his compositions are always thoughtful and his dedication makes him one of my absolute favorite artists.

Just to compare...

Origo, can you post some actual pics of the piece once it arrives? It would help to get an idea of the scale :drool:

Seems like Martin has tapped into a powerful creative vein lately. He is painting one great image after another. I am in awe.

Another homerun from Origo. Way to go, bud!

A visit to Origo's house would be one heck of a show!

I love his polar bears - congrats Origo :clap:

This one reminds me of the wizard of oz meets apocalypse now - with the poppy field and the helicopter.

between origo's latest piece and this yellow canvas - martin has been on fire lately. Nice to see him put out some smaller works as well as he normally works on such a large scale

Origo, I remember your Hem commission had two bears in it also. Symbolic or coincidence?
