Oil on Canvas 24 x 30 Without going into the meaning of this painting, the symbolic elements that I have included in the painting are,
A woman pulling a military flight suit open, A tree that while forming wings behind her is losing it's leaves, entities residing inside human caccoons, Mechanical dibreise, including a hose taking the shape of Fibonacci symmetry. Courtney Stewart was the model for this project.
What is most significant about the painting to me is that 95% of the work I did on this traditional oil painting was done in public places, or at work on some of the film sets, where I could draw upon fresh environments and new places as a source of inspiration. It helped to eliminate the stagnant feeling I get from home, and buy time I might not normally have.
It's so haunting.
And what a strangeland it is! I love the hidden eyes on the ground!
Oh... oh my goodness. OoO This is so beautiful. Oh my gosh, and the tree IS her wings!! What an awesome concept. ^-^
An example of what happens to a painting when you don't stop. I'm thinking of maybe even doing more on it. Maybe.
Wow! You're very talented at paintings! *o*
Wonderful, haunting work. The first thing that struck me was the eerie likeness of your model, Courtney. The sight of the shrouded figures are enough to have me jumping out of my skin but its also the atmosphere you've captured which is dream-like and foreboding.
Nice feedback. I appreciate the depth to which you took it in, and the time you took to express your thoughts on it.
Very interesting and beautiful work congratulations!

This is amazing. The symbolism makes this super interesting, it would almost be "magical" if not for the jacket, it's a really nice balance, got a whole new-world sort of feel to it. love it
thanks. I wanted it to feel like another planet, like she is possibly stranded, while her only companions are in deep hybernation.
