Artwork Description

Here is Belladonna,the lady of the rocks,the lady of situations.And here is the one eyed merchant,and this card which is blank,is something he carries on his back-which I am forbidden to see...(T.S.Elliot)The moral of this story is-dont eat Belladonna berries or you might see stuff like this.Oil on masonite 16x20

Thanks Tom!I'm actually somewhat satisfied with this one.I agree,it is another step in the learning-re-learning process.Looking for some work from you!

Thanks again Ihsan!Yes,I cleared out a bunch of crap.These newer ones have served a purpose,each one a study on something very specific in terms applying paint in different mixtures with linseed oil,cobalt drier and thinner.Time for the darkside!Thanks Ihsan-Oh yeah,the "model" is a friend.

Hey Sean! How's it going! Looks like you've been real busy with a clear-out and some great new stuff! I like what you you've done here - it's a terrific portrait, she's very beautiful (a model?), those eyes are so crystal clear and lifelike, quite inredible! The composition is a beautiful one also - cool idea with the eye-plants! Great work Sean, keep it rockin'!

Her face is lovely, but those eye-plants are creepy! Definitely not something you'd want growing in your garden!

Well I think it has already been said, but I'll say it again, beautiful colors. The eyes are almost symbolic of Mother Nature always watching.

Thanks Christine!You know,this is sitting in my studio and wherever you walk the eyes seem to follow you:o

Thanks Bill!I chose to use very hard lines in the leaves and surrounding foliage so they would appear almost plastic and dissconected from the softness of the figure-Thanks again!

Totally amazing colour work, Sean! the girl's face is excellent, She certainly looks a little spaced, and the eye guys are real creepy, love it!
