Hi to everyone ,
Thank you all for the good wishes.
Just finished this & each time I look at it, it makes me feel happy! 🙂
Hi to everyone ,
This is my latest painting, inspired by my love of gaming.
I have created a scene using a few nurses from Silent Hill ,
One of the creatures from Dark Souls tripled & a little 2000 AD.
Mostly acrylics & a far cry from my usual work!
I know it’s on the dark side but I love it. It may never
be 100% finished. I’ve been a busy bee battling the fibro &
have more to show you soon . There is also a double meaning
in the title …. is it Scar City or Scarcity you decide
Thanks for your time &
The inspiration for this piece came from the tales of the Native American People.
In particular the story of the elders going to the mountain to die & with great accuracy
be able to predict the exact day of passing away.
Thus the saying “Today is a good day to die”
The belief behind this came from the close connection with
Nature & spiritual cleansing ritual.
I wanted the piece to have a Celtic twist.
After climbing a steep set of steps the first sight is a Dolmen ( Celtic burial tomb ).
After walking under the Dolmen there is a simple bench, to sit & reflect for a while before
a short walk through a very simple Celtic doorway, the gateway between
this & the otherworld.
Hope you enjoy, bye for now .
Hope this Valentine’s Day finds you all well.
Today’s piece is my first attempt to paint a creature. I was attracted to painting this from the wonderful varieties of colour on these tiny tree frogs.
This little guy took approximately a month to complete. Using a slate, I first painted the background with acrylics and washes and the frog himself by using oils. The original background had been Indian Red colours which I changed to a mix of Cadmium Yellow Indian Yellow and a touch of Sienna.
I believe it is quite fitting on this special day to post him for all the folks out there in our world who may wish they had a frog to kiss … just in case!
Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone !
