The Apocalypse (study)

Another new oil painting on panel...I was intending this one to be more of an actual recognizable landscape, somewhat in the manner of John Martin's "The Great Day of His Wrath", but it came out as a more amorphous and abstract piece, which I'd like to keep as is & work further on another panel, which I hope to do shortly.

The Veiling of the Bride

This is a new oil painting on panel inspired by a drawing I did some time ago. Oddly (or perhaps not, as this happens to me occasionally), the painting is more simplified than the drawing. However, they both work in similar yet different ways.

Silence and Solitude

Another one in the new series of oil paintings on panel. This one is quite simple & painted in earth tones. The trees were an afterthought.

Resting Colossus

I'm enjoying the depth & texture of using oil paint after such a long time. Here is another small painting of a giant figure in a landscape...it also references my Narcissus painting (the semi-fetal figure and all).
