Brisbane is a wallpaper. No, really.

** November, 2009 ______Edit: Wallpapers are no longer available ** Before I move on to other stuff, I'd like to post these wallpapers I made, featuring the lovely Brisbane.

It's been very quiet at Disanthus.Com as of late, and we're leaving the site as it is for now, but we hope to update regularly on this blog. There are a few paintings I have finished since the last update on Disanthus, and below is one of them. (Image deleted) The painting is one of the main characters in Deanna Raybourn's Silent On The Moor book (the final one in the Silent trilogy); I'll not wax lyrical about Nicholas Brisbane because there simply aren't enough words to do him justice. So I've painted him instead. This was originally a speed painting I did based on Richard Armitage in North & South (The BBC mini-series), but Br
