it's kind of disturbing, actually (but maybe that's just the knowledge blood was used:eek: )
i see his back; scarred, infected - festering
i see pumpkin flesh; fungus, decay - lifecycle

gross and beautiful at once.

I see the spine also and horribly mutilated and diseased flesh. Wow, very very powerful painting!! It also looks like lots of piercing and scars in the flesh. That's how it made me feel.

This piece is one of yer latest and greastest Miles. I really dig it Hombre! I guess we're subconsciously on the same level in some areas of our thinking because about a year ago i started a painted that i never really finished but i saved it as "Bloodline" when i photographed it. It's visually much different from your piece but i thought i'd try and dig up a photo of it for the sake of "sake".:D Maybe now you'll have motivated me to finish MY own Bloodline.:D

i always enjoy these abstract world you create with your linear imagery and color. definately finish it bud, it's a keeper.
thanks for the comments and the compliments.

Jenna and Lynxes:

Im glad you got that disturbing effect- that's definately what i was trying to achieve, that emotional response. i'm flattered you both read it so well. Thanks for your comments and feedback, that's important to me.

Thanks to all for looking.

Great work and I echo what Jenna and Lynxes said with the addition of splatterings of molten metal (I have background in materials science so that explains why i see that). Sacrifices and mutilation do spring to mind but painted in a beautifully emotive and thought provoking manner.
