This surreal painting is one that arose as I painted rather than being very planned. I started with a landscape background of water and dark sky, but intended to make something different as the focus--some kind of vessel. But the egg seemed right instead. I made clouds circle the egg like sanctification. The bat-winged angels (or demons), faceless as night gaunts, with the multiple wings of dark seraphim, came next. Their halos are silver. I originally intended the crown to be made of something sharp, like blackthorn branches or perhaps swords, but cold, sensuous flames seemed more fitting. In this work of magic realism, something is waiting to be born--something as revered in some quarters as saints are in others, something divine or sacred in its own way.
