Underground Spirit Print
This is one of those paintings where I let things arise as I paint. As I applied the magnetic black pigment, it began to shape what I saw as tattered wings along the lower left-hand corner. That made me think immediately of a dark spirit, since in art history, the demonic has often been depicted with such wings. I saw the large black mark in the upper left as the spirit's head and added paint to bring that idea to the fore. On the right are streams of rock (the Earth's bones) and lava (the Earth's blood) that are part of this spirit's home.
The museum quality giclee print is 11 x 14" on archival paper and should be framed behind glass. The original painting has been sold.
