Artwork Description

This piece is about a bruised woman who's trying to escape from shadow-like phantoms, with her life, on a cold morning. I call it, 'The Coldest Day', because, to the woman, being chased by phantoms on a winter morning, bare footed on flooded ground, this is the coldest day she will ever have. If she lives, she will remember her cold hands trying hard to pull up an old axe from the water to protect herself from impossible shadows.

If you have never read "The Old Kingdom" series by Garth Nix, you need to. This image is a perfect representation of someone being chased by a "Gore Crow" and "Shadow Hands".

You've touched my soul in a very personal way, and yet you will probably never know just how so. Never the less very few can bring a tear to these tired eyes and the sting is a great welcome surprise. BRAVO!!!

Hey thanks! I feel honored you like this enough to keep coming back. Smile She's gonna get really messed up, but barely escape with her life. However, the scars on her body and cold days of the future will always remind her of this horrific moment.

I really appreciate all of your comments! I submitted this piece to two art book called 'Spectrum, and Expose'. I'm hoping I get in at least one.

Ricardo, it's funny you mention 'The Shinning', because that movie has internally influenced my vision since I saw it as a kid. So when I paint eerie paintings, feelings from that movie usually comes to mind.
