My painting is complete. It’s egg tempera with pigments made from our community garden, and I framed it in a Bastop area tree branch.
This piece is to be hung on the wall.
It’s my first completed egg tempera painting. But what’s most interesting is that my friend Todd and I created the pigment from nature using a method inspired by Caroline McCoy’s restaurant FOOD NY 1970s and burnt cigar.
I have titled it ”On the invisible battlefield.”
it’s priced at $425, shipping included. This could be an important piece, but only buy it if you like it, and hope the best is ahead for me in my fine arts career. Lol.
This piece is close to being done. Her hands, the torch, the snake tongues all need work. I can’t stand the way the torch doesn’t overlap the book. Lol. Like I said, it needs some work still. And it needs about two weeks of me just looking at it to see what else it needs.
FYI: Her tears are printed in my blood and the fingerprints on her tablet are blood. So I guess this is mixed media. Putty, acrylic and blood.
Nathanael Chavers has first right of refusal. It was because of him that I realized its importance. It’s probably my most important work to date.
