- Layered art- I live in a world full of magic ✨
- Hey guys! I'm really excited to show you this piece I started last month.
My original idea was to make the butterflies realistic, but after outlining them I thought making them look like some type of spirt/constellation would be cool.
This ties for my largest painting (24 x 30). What would you title it?
Btw, scroll down on my page to see my first ever astronaut painting :)
- The Lovers’ Crusade
Oil on canvas
52.25 x 54.5”
In “The Lovers’ Crusade” a figure, presumably a woman (as she wears a shroud, cross-culturally associated with females in religious garb), stands being engulfed by broad strokes of yellow, turquoise, and purple flames. Although she is being burned alive, both of her hands raise in ballet’s iconic fifth position. A figure dramatically leaps toward her, also with a prancing, dance-like gesture. Slightly toward the back right, one figure stabs another leaping figure with a sword, while a third collapses in a kneeling position. In the center background, hiding amongst magenta trees, another shrouded character stares out directly at the carnage- or the viewer. Towards the center right, a figure hangs upside down by his feet from a tree. The playfulness of the figures’ gestural movement cuts the violence in the scene, akin to the dramatic staged emotion of an operatic performance.
