Painting in progress - Sweet Cavity Resonance

This is oil and pencil on a 24″ x 36″ canvas, just getting underway. I use layers of paint and gloss. This one will take a couple of weeks. It came to me from a fever dream. I was/am ill. I’ll be using some birds, fade the face, tether the kites, make it weird.

Plutarch said the mind was not something to be filled, but a fire to be kindled. That’s awesome. I set this character’s brain on fire. He looks like he really digs it.
