Falling off vi

With every intention to post all three little narratives last night, I got the first one about the crucifixion complete, put the children to bed and promptly fell asleep myself (wearing my clothes, ech!). 

I began composition work for the Falling Off painting by attaching a piece of string close to the top off the canvas, allowing me to draw single point perspective lines with a strong forced perspective which will enable me to paint the trees so that they really emphasize the depth as they recede towards the sky.



I’ll need to do a little research on the constellation Scorpio so I can get it accurate. I have the photo source for my Virgo girl falling of the world. Remember that the painting is astrological: my wife is Scorpio, I’m a Virgo. Not saying I’m a virginal girl here, just that that’s my sign! (Perhaps I should paint the maiden with a lion’s head to show Leo rising?)
