Re: Priestess

Gayle, Lavender and Katie, greatly obliged. Thank you!
There seem to be quite a lot of silent views here. I love the quiet crowd.

Re: Priestess

Lovely. Are you painting over a texture ground on the paper? I am just curious, is there a story behind the headdress and priestess title?

Re: Priestess

Thank you guys.
I paint over older paintings of my own (almost always.....), hence the texture.
Btw, this one was already in a frame behind glass when I took this shot. So there are a couple of reflections there.
As for story, it’s up to the viewer to make it up.

Re: Priestess

Well, Hairy, when you run out of superlatives it's hard to think of anything to say. They're all exceptionally good and enigmatically engaging. Sometimes a little scary but most often evoking concern for the vulnerable looking players.

This character doesn't look vulnerable to me.

Has no one else noted the reptilian three-fingered hands?

You paint over old works? I'm shocked they didn't find buyers.

Re: Priestess

What Cliff said echoes my thoughts.

This is another evocative piece.

Your work has the feel of a reinvention of the Greek tragedy. I am reading a book on the Trojan War at the moment and I can just picture this woman in the role of Cassandra.

Re: Priestess

Exceptional, again!
Like Clifff and Colin, I noticed the hands and the 'attitude' ..... definitely not a lady to mess with, she's already contemplating her next victim!!!
