Artwork Description

The original digital painting began around 1992 and included small fragments of a clipart photo of a cluster of butterflies. This particular incarnation began almost six months ago (Feb. 2009) and represents at least thirty hours of additional painting as I completely reworked the background and added the serpent.
Aside from obvious associations with ancient Egyptian symbolism (the winged scarab and the serpent), the background takes this into a nightmarish Lovecraftian realm of unspeakable sensuality and horror. Writhing tendrils surround a yawning triskelid orifice which bears an intentional resemblance to a vulval vestibule as well as resembling a gaping alien mouth.

" I don't believe in evil, I believe only in Horror. In nature there is no evil, only an abundance of Horror: the plagues and the blights and the ants and the maggots." -(Isak Dinesen)

I've been on a mad creative streak recently, but it's spread over several different pieces. Hope to get at least one more soon.=D

I was expecting this....Good detail. Still I can't wait for more!!!! Being patient is the hard part.

Art at its best.
